Traffic congestion has been a regular problem due to works for new buildings and the laying of new communications links along main roads including Watling Street and Shenley Hill. Multiple traffic lights and single lanes have caused significant delays around our area and beyond over many months. There is little sign of such pressures easing as further major construction works are planned including a large new office block in Watling Street and the renovation of Radlett Gardens.

Inconsiderate and illegal parking continue to be a problem. With little enforcement action by Hertsmere or Police this can only get worse. It is clear many drivers do not consider regulations apply to them so continue to park across drives, in bus stops, disabled bays and so on.

Hertsmere Councillor Paul Morris submitted a detailed report to Hertsmere Borough Council on his consultations with Radlett residents on their views on what developments would be supported. They are working to develop new proposals for further consultation in early 2019 so it will be some time before any specific developments will be proposed for this site.


The hourly 601 route to St Albans and Hat-field has settled in well and is being well used. The 398 route to Watford has been cut back so now only runs a few times a day which is disappointing. However the 602 provides a half hourly service from Radlett to Watford and to St Albans via Shenley and London Colney which is fairly well used.


The introduction of a completely new Thameslink timetable in 2018 caused serious problems for many weeks although services to and from Radlett were not significantly affected unlike to other stations on the line, notably Harpenden. New direct services to stations in Kent are now operating from Radlett.
