A £2m improvement scheme for Watford High Street


The works - scheduled to run from 8 January to the end of September 2018 - will improve the look and feel of our High Street. They will make our town centre more attractive and easy to get around for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as reducing noise and pollution. The works will be finished in time for the opening of the new intu extension.

Improvements are being made made to two stretches of the High Street. The first stretch is the area between Clarendon Road and Market Street, running from January to the end of May. The second is between 102 High Street (outside Cafe Nero) and Market Street, running from June to September 2018.

The work is being carried out on behalf of Watford Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council by Murrill Construction Ltd.

This is a major improvement scheme and so requires the stretches of the High Street to be closed to vehicles for the duration of the works. Both pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the High street during this time.
