A1(M) Smart Upgrade – the WPAG Response

A Highways England Consultation on the proposed A1(M) Upgrade to Smart Motorway Project has been running until the end of March 2020. On our website report of 19th February we reminded you that work was starting on junctions 6 to 8 to strengthen the existing hard shoulder so that two lanes can be kept open for traffic when work starts on the central reservation. Considerably more detail is included in our earlier report.

The WPAG has worked on this Consultation with the Welwyn Parish Council and the Welwyn Parish Plan Group, both of which bodies shared our concerns and anxieties.

Below is the WPAG’s Response to the Highways England Consultation.
