Travel woe after police car crash in Stevenage
DAMAGE caused after a police car careered off a road and into railings is still causing travel problems, three weeks after the crash.
Road users in Stevenage have been unable to turn left into Colestrete off Six Hills Way since the incident occurred during an emergency call-out on Wednesday, August 18, which has also resulted in two Bedwell bus services only being able to operate one way.
Arriva bus services 14 and 5 have been affected but there have been no notices put up to inform the public about the disruption.
Regular passenger Mary Sharp, of Vinters Avenue, said: “There’s been no information provided on which buses are running.
“It’s already been for a few weeks and it’s a big problem up there.

“I tried to get on a bus which was going in the opposite direction to the way I wanted to travel and stay on it until it goes all the way round but the bus driver refused. It’s ridiculous.”
A spokesman for Hertfordshire County Council said: “A temporary one way system was put in place with traffic signals that day (August 18), with concrete barriers going in on August 25 after a vehicle collided with and structurally damaged the bridge.
