Drivers and shoppers in Borehamwood town centre are facing lengthy delays because of roadworks.

There are two sets of work taking place in the town that are already causing considerable problems this morning (May 21).

Four-way traffic lights are in operation at the Tesco/McDonald's roundabout in Shenley Road.

The lights are causing heavy traffic in both directions, including from Elstree Way and through the town centre from the Furzehill Road junction.

Shoppers are also reporting delays leaving the Tesco car park so people are advised to leave plenty of extra time if heading to the supermarket.

There are also temporary traffic lights in Theobald Street, between Elstree & Borehamwood station and Borehamwood Shopping Park, which is adding to the traffic disruption today.

Affinity Water is responsible for both sets of work, according to traffic data management website One Network.

It is unclear whether the work is planned, but Affinity Water has been carrying out emergency work in Green Street, between Borehamwood and Shenley, as well as in Radlett Lane, near Shenley Park, in recent days.

The traffic lights by Tesco are currently scheduled to be gone by the end of this weekend, and by Monday in Theobald Street. This is subject to change.

A little further afield, motorists should continue to expect delays on the A1 southbound from Stirling Corner to Apex Corner in Edgware.

This is because lane closures are in place because of bridge repairs taking place on the A41 by Apex Corner.

The lane closures are set to remain in place until at least July. More than 2,000 people have signed a petition calling for Transport for London to make changes to limit the disruption the roadworks are causing.
