    There was gridlock in Borehamwood and Elstree this afternoon due to a crash and roadworks.
  • -
  • Police shut Elstree Hill early this afternoon (Friday) after two cars collided.
  • -
  • The collision involved a Fiat and a Toyota - no serious injuries were reported.
  • -
  • As a result, traffic was diverted via Allum Lane, Deacons Hill Road, and Barnet Lane, which caused congestion along these routes.
  • -
  • The delays were not helped by roadworks in Theobakd Street by Borehamwood Shopping Park.
  • -
  • This led to delays at the mini-roundabout by Elstree & Borehamwood station, while it also took some time for shoppers to leave the shopping park.
  • -
  • The roadworks were lifted at around 4pm and Elstree Hill was open by 4.30pm.
  • -
  • Traffic levels have now returned to normal.
