Watford Borough Council, working closely with local councillors, local businesses, residents and Hertfordshire County Council, want to make improvements to St Albans Road. These include new street furniture, improved paving, tree planting, more cycle friendly routes and other changes to the look and feel of the area.
Watford Borough Council is investing £400,000 to revamp the ‘Callowland’ stretch of St Albans Road (from Brixton Road to Balmoral Road). It’s really important that we can get the views of local residents and users about how you think this stretch of St Albans Road can be made better. Have your say on the consultation at www.stalbansroad.co.uk
The £400,000 investment will include:
Consistent style for railings on pavements and on the road
More trees and greenery
More parking bays to ease the parking pressure
Exploring options for cycling along the route
Working with Hertfordshire County Council to resolve the water pooling
