Major resurfacing in Hemel Hempstead starting 23 January - Press Release text:
- Hemel Garden Communities, with the support of Hertfordshire County Council, will be resurfacing the section of the Nickey Line from Redbourn Road to the Queensway within Hemel Hempstead.
- The surface will be ‘tar and chip’, similar to the surface used on the Nickey Line within Harpenden. This offers a sealed surface suitable for multiple users and an appearance in keeping with the rural setting.
- Contractors will be setting up on site this week, with works due to commence on the 23rd January. We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.
Friends of the Nickey Line welcome this step to improving usability and hopefully the number of users locally for the Nickey Line. We have been lobbying the councils for significant surface improvements throughout the Line, especially for the new surfaces to appear as 'natural / rural' as possible.
