AFTER a month of nocturnal work the Magic Roundabout in Hemel Hempstead has now been restored to some of its former glory with a new road surface and markings.

Work was completed on the town icon on Friday night following a month of night-time road closures, with the aim of keeping daytime disruptions to a minimum.

Resurfacing began on the roundabout following the announcement that it had picked up a gong for Roundabout of the Year 2011 in a national competition back in May this year.

The revamp was originally scheduled to begin on Monday July 4 but highways chiefs moved back the date until August 1 due to delays and to take advantage of the school summer holidays.
