Closure of Water Lane, Watford, to overrun by two months due to bridge repair delays
Bridge repairs, which have closed a central Watford road since July, are set to overrun by two months because replacement parts were delivered late.
Hertfordshire County Council said Water Lane will be closed until November 22 after works had been originally scheduled to end on September 13.
Contractors have been working on major repair works to the bridge over the road since July 22.
A spokesperson for Hertfordshire County Council said: "Our contractors have experienced further delays to work to replace the bridge deck and parapets at Water Lane, due to the late delivery of pre-cast beams which will form part of the new bridge deck. The completion date is now expected to be mid November.
"We are working closely with them to ensure that there are no further significant delays and we apologise for any inconvenience during these essential works."
