Route 242: Cattlegate Road, Cuffley expected until 24 October
Roadworks with temporary traffic lights at the junction of the B156 (Northaw Road East) and Cattlegate Road are causing delays to traffic especially at peak times, affecting buses travelling bewteen Cuffley and Potters Bar. In order to minimise delays to the service, for the duration of these works, the 0640 and 0715 Monday to Friday departures from Waltham Cross to Potters Bar will be diverted from Cuffley Station via Plough Hill, Ridgeway and Vineyards Road to Northaw, picking up/setting down near Northaw Church. Intermediate stops between Cuffley and Northaw (including Park Road and Two Brewers) will not be served by these journeys.
Delays may also be experienced in Cheshunt due to roadworks in the vicinity of Broxbourne Borough Council offices.
Route 84: Hadley Highstone until 28 October
We regret that temporary traffic lights on the A1000 at Hadley Highstone are causing extensive peak hour delays affecting buses on route 84 which may run as much as 20 minutes late on some occasions. Our staff are doing their best to minimise the impact of these delays. We apologise to passengers who may be affected, please allow extra time for your journey during the rush hour.
Route 84: St Albans City Centre 8-18 October
Roadworks will take place in Hatfield Road, St Albans between the above dates and are expected to result in congestion and delays in the City Centre. The affected times are 0800 to 1800 Mondays to Saturdays and 0900 to 1600 on Sundays.
Buses on route 84 will be diverted to run via Victoria Street in both directions and will not serve the Alban City School stop during the above periods.
We will do our best to minimise inconvenience to our customers arising from the above events and apologise for any inconvenience experienced.
Our Country routes run in close proximity to the M1, M25 and A1(M) motorways. Incidents (collisons and the like) occur from time to time on these motorways causing traffic to slow down or stop. When this occurs, much of the traffic diverts onto local roads which have much less capacity than the motorway, slowing these roads to a crawl. Such events can have a severe impact on our routes, as the resulting delays can often be 30 minutes or more, for which it is not possible for us to provide in our normal schedule.
Our staff do their best to deal with these situations and try to return the service to the timetable as quickly as possible but there is little that can be done while traffic is not moving. We will let our customers know by Twitter whenever possible when such instances occur and what effect they are having and we can only ask for your patience in circumstances which are beyond our control.
We are not currently aware of any other planned roadworks or closures affecting our Country routes. Please check our Twitter feed @MetrolineH for updates on unexpected events or incidents. You can also check roadworks throughout Hertfordshire by clicking here.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of the impact on our services.
