Herts County Council has announced a large road safety investment is to be planned for the A602. This A-road runs between Ware and Stevenage and the prepared plans are thought to cost in the region of £19.4 million.
Eight separate locations on the road are to be improved as part of the road safety investment plans. Four separate junctions on the road are expected to be realigned from their present positions, with one of these planned to be widened at the same time. The Hertford Road roundabout is also up for consideration to be enlarged. The same could happen to the Anchor Lane roundabout. Several other changes are also set to take place as part of the million-pound plans.
The plans are due to be considered before November 2014. If they are all approved it is hoped works would begin in 2017, with a projected completion time of two years. Some locals support the works but others say the council could do more to provide a better road in other areas too, including the addition of pavements where necessary. The council has yet to seek funding for the plans though, so until they are fully approved and swing into action nothing is 100% certain.
Are you entitled to compensation after a road traffic accident?
Being injured in a car accident or road accident can be devastating. Even if the injuries you sustain are relatively minor it can be a huge shock to the system. If your injuries are more severe it can take months or even years to recover, or to adjust to the way things are now.
If you have experienced an accident and you believe it to be the fault of another person, you should have proof of negligence. This will help support a legal case for compensation if you decide to bring one.
