Safety Information

Good morning,


We are writing to confirm that construction on North Road is due to begin on 12 June 2023, starting at the southern section between A602 Lytton Way gyratory and Franklin’s Road.


Hertfordshire County Council will shortly be delivering a new two-way cycle route along North Road in Stevenage, between Coreys Mill Lane and the A602 Lytton Way. We will also be installing new crossing facilities and better signage to local routes.


More information about the project, including scheme maps and the results from the summer 2021 consultation, can be found online:


Final chance to have your say: High Street Old Town Stevenage Improvements

We are also proposing improvements to the High Street with the aim to enhance the connections between north Stevenage and the Old Town. The online survey will close at midnight on 11 June. Please click here to find out more and have your say.


North Road: Phasing of works

Works are due to commence on 12 June and have been phased to minimise disruption. Exact dates will be shared closer to the start of each phase, but all main works will be completed during the day, between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 1pm on Saturdays. The phases:

Diversion route

There will be no through-route along North Road throughout all phases of work. A signed diversion route will be in place via B197 (North Road/Graveley Road) and A602 (Hitchin Road/Lytton Way) and via A602 (High Street/James Way/Lytton Way/Hitchin Road) and B197 (Graveley Road/North Road).


The works start at the southern end of North Road and will shift northwards in sections throughout each of the phases. During each phase, one section of North Road will be closed, but access to residences and businesses will be maintained, either from the north or the south depending on the location of the works.


Phase 1 road closure

During Phase 1, North Road will be closed to traffic in both directions between the A602 Lytton Way gyratory and Franklin’s Road.


Access will be maintained for residents and businesses located on Franklin’s Road, Burymead, Whitney Drive, Tudor Close and Rectory Lane from the north of North Road. Traffic signals will facilitate access into Franklin’s Road.


Access to properties located within the works area with direct access from North Road will also be maintained. Construction staff will be positioned at the north of the works area during working hours to provide assistance. Resident vehicles may have to wait to be guided to/from their properties. Outside working hours, a route will remain open for residents to enter and exit their properties via the north of the works area. We will be in touch with residents at the end of May with further details.


Access from the A602 Lytton Way gyratory into North Road will not be possible. Road users should follow the diversion route outlined above.


Bus services

During all phases of work, buses will not serve the bus stops on North Road (Burymead and Franklin’s Road). Buses will be on diversion via Coreys Mill Lane and the A602 Hitchin Road. Passengers who normally embark the bus at Burymead or Franklin’s Road should instead use bus stops at Lister Hospital or the Mulberry Tree, Old Town. 


We are continuing to liaise with bus operators to minimise disruption during the works. Information will be published on the Intalink website:, and Twitter page [@Intalink]. Details will also be publicised on physical notices at all relevant bus stops.


Walking and cycle access

Access will be maintained for people walking on North Road throughout the works. There may be some short-term diversions which will be clearly signed. In some areas, those cycling may be asked to dismount and share the footway with care.


A diversion route to bypass the works is suggested via Whitney Drive and the National Cycle Network Route 12.


Overnight works

Carriageway resurfacing will be completed overnight when there will be no vehicle access through the construction areas, except for emergency vehicles. Dates will be confirmed closer to these works and affected residents will be contacted directly.


Further phases

Updates on the subsequent phases of work will be available online at


We appreciate your patience while we complete these works.
