Cyclists use this route on the A602 between Stony Hills and the Sacombe Pound junction when travelling between Hertford and Dane End. Planning Application PL\0852\17 covers Ware Road and includes changes to the Stony Hills and sacombe Pound junctions.
The A602 carries heavy traffic and this scheme is designed to improve traffic flows along the A602, mainly by realigning and adding right-turn lanes between Stevenage and Ware:
- Vehicles turning right are blocking traffic behind, causing delays.
- Tight bends and poor visibility make the road less safe than it could be.
- Often long queues at junctions.
Construction works for Hertford Road junction, Stevenage; Anchor Lane, Westmill Road and the A10 junction near Ware are now planned to start in August 2017.
Further planning applications have been submitted for Ware Road and the A119 roundabout.
