1. To prohibit all vehicular traffic from using that length of B180 Hunsdon Road, Widford from its junction with Daintrees south eastwards for a distance of approximately 40 metres, except for access.
An alternative route will be via B180 Hunsdon Road, B1004 (Ware Road/Widbury Hill/Star Street), A1170 (Bridge Foot/Viaduct Road/London Road/Amwell Hill/Pepper Hill), B181 (Station Road/High Street/Roydon Road) and B180 (Hunsdon Road/Stanstead Road/High Street/Widford Road/Hunsdon Road).
2. The existing 7.5 tonnes (mgw) weight restriction on that length of B181 (Station Road/ High Street/Roydon Road), Stanstead Abbotts from its junction with the A414 Eastwick Road/A1170 Pepper Hill roundabout north eastwards, south eastwards, north eastwards and south eastwards to its junction with B180 Hunsdon Road, a distance of approximately 2180 metres will be temporarily suspended to enable all vehicles to use this length of roads, whilst works are in progress.
