Path resurfacing of Alban Way 'next phase' in St Albans' green development
Resurfacing work to a path in St Albans will start this month.
Work by St Albans District Council will begin on Monday, September 16 along Alban Way until October.
The work will take place from Cottonmill Lane to Smallford. This is part of the council’s strategy to promote active travel in the district by improving existing facilities for cycling and walking.
Councillor Beric Read, portfolio holder for community engagement and localism for the council, said: "The Alban Way is a key component in the council’s green ring project. This will enable cyclists and pedestrians to travel around the city with minimal use of roads.
"We have already built new cycle routes in Verulamium Park as part of the project. The resurfacing of the Alban Way is the next phase in the development of the green ring. Thank you for your patience while this work is carried out."
Once upgraded, parts of the path will form sections of a green ring around St Albans to enable cyclists and pedestrians to travel around the city with minimal use of roads.
The work will involve laying a new tarmac surface and is being carried out in five phases to ensure disruption is minimised and will take around five weeks to complete.
During each phase of work, it will be necessary to close sections of the path temporarily. Signs are in place to direct pedestrians and cyclists to alternative routes.
