The Watford Town Hall underpass was closed off after a car crash last night.

Hertfordshire Constabulary was called to St Albans Road at 9.25pm after a black Mini One hit a crash barrier and ended up blocking the road.

Officers closed the underpass and diverted traffic via the roundabout while the car was recovered.

The road was reopened around 10.30pm. The driver was uninjured in the accident.

TRT says...

No doubt speed will be a factor. It is a 30 limit there but the majority seem to treat it like a race track.

Also the signage is wrong there - Herts Highways, ignoring the recent missive from the DfT on the use of blue circles and arrows for lane guidance, have chosen to use the sign for "pass either side to reach same destination" at the points where the underpass diverges from the roundabout lanes. The correct signage, to warn of the barrier and concrete divider, is a series of reflective stripes.

Presumably, again, yet another stretch of road that would not fall under the '20's Plenty' idea.
