A speeding hotspot could see a reduction in motorists driving too fast thanks to a new traffic-calming measure.
Efforts to make Hemel Hempstead’s Washington Avenue a safer road for all who use it have been boosted thanks to the area’ county councillor, Colette Wyatt-Lowe.
Ms Wyatt-Lowe, who represents the Hemel Hempstead North East division and also sits on Dacorum Borough Council, has allocated £3,300 from her locality budget to the cause.
The Dacorum Community Safety Partnership will use the cash boost to put up flashing speed hazard devices on the 30mph stretch in Grovehill.
The partnership is a collaborative scheme incorporating Dacorum and Herts councils as well as the county’s police, probation, fire and health services. Its aim is to make Dacorum even safer and more pleasant and to provide a background where people, communities and businesses can flourish.
A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects in their area.
