Route 84: Barnet/Hadley Highstone - May - July
The sewer works leading to heavy traffic in Barnet and delays on route 84 were originally expected to be completed last November but were extended to the end of February due to unexpected issues. Work in the area has resumed again from 14 May and is currently expected to continue until late July.
In order to maintain as close to our scheduled timings as possible, we will use extra resources subject to availibility, but it may occasionally be necessary to divert some buses away from the affected area, especially at peak times. The diversionary route will be via St Albans Road and Dancers Hill Road. Buses from Barnet towards Potters Bar, when on diversion, will serve Bus Stop B, not Stop A, in Barnet High Street and will not serve the stops in Barnet Road between St Albans Road and the Duke of York.
We apologise to passengers who may be affected, please allow extra time for your journey during the rush hour.
Route 242: Various - May
Temporary traffic lights at different locations in the Flamstead End/Brookfield area are affecting journey times in week commencing 20 May, we are not sure how long this can be expected to last.
On 30/31 May, overnight roadworks will take place in Churchgate Road, Cheshunt, between Andrews Lane and Goff Lane, between 2000 and 0500 hrs. The evening buses affected will be diverted via Andrews Lane, Rosedale Way and Goffs Lane (or vice versa). On sections of these roads where there are no existing bus stops, drivers will stop on request where it is safe to do so without obstructing other traffic.

We will do our best to minimise any inconvenience to our customers arising from issues affecting our services and apologise for any inconvenience experienced. Please check Twitter @MetrolineH for updates.
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.
