Joint statement with Herts County Council on Hartham Common bridge

Hartham common bridge
Hertfordshire County Council and East Herts Council are working together to repair and reopen the bridge over the River Lea on Hartham Common, which has been closed due to safety concerns.

We understand the frustration and inconvenience this situation is causing, and both councils would like to apologise to residents for that.

Temporary repair work to the bridge surface will start on Wednesday, 16 February and is expected to complete on Thursday, 17 February with the bridge reopening that evening.

More substantial repairs to the surface are being planned for later in the spring.
