More road closures for works around a village are expected, with buses set to skip stops, after “chaos” last week.

Two roads between Kings Langley and Bedmond Road are set to shut between 9.30am and 4pm on Friday and Saturday (March 1 and 2).

Hertfordshire County Council will be carrying out gully works in Harthall Lane and Hyde Lane and it is understood these will be consecutive rather than at the same time.

The same area of Harthall Lane, near Railway Terrace in Kings Langley, is again expected to be shut between April 8 and 10 for Affinity Water maintenance.

Toms Lane, near the junction with Primrose Hill, will also close soon. Affinity Water will need access for “mains water works (rehabilitation)” all day between March 4 and 7.

During this time, The H19 bus between Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley will not serve stops between Abbots Langley's Pope’s Road and Tom’s Lane and the KL80 between Kings Langley and Kings Langley School will not stop between Tom’s Lane and Sheppey’s Lane in Bedmond.

The road will then close for Affinity Water maintenance again, nearer Bedmond, between April 10 and April 12.

The closures follow a series of other roadworks in the area, including in Bedmond Road, near the entrance to Newlands Park over the weekend.

This reportedly sparked “chaos” as it was originally only planned to be a lane closure, before a leak “turned out to be worse than originally thought”.
