Scheme Progressing Well

Visitors to top of town in Watford will have noticed the improvement works are progressing really well. The contractor, Aggregate Industries, have been working closely with local businesses to keep any disruption to a minimum, and to allow shoppers room to get around!

Over the last few weeks, large areas of new granite paving have been laid along The Parade. New lighting columns have been installed and new seating and cycle racks are now in place. Raised tree pits are also being installed and once the tree planting season begins this winter, new trees will be planted to complement the existing mature trees and create an avenue effect.

Works to the pond will begin once the fish spawning and bird nesting seasons are over. These works have been planned, having taken advice from expert ecologists.  The birds will naturally relocate to nearby water bodies; and the fish will be carefully removed and stored off-site in holding tanks until the new renovated pond is complete in the spring when they will be re-released.

Aggregate Industries are beginning to open up completed areas of the works to the public as soon as possible. Below is an image of the first completed area which was opened last week. We hope you are as pleased as us to see the scheme coming together.

We will continue to update you as the works progress and you can see the scheme phasing plan here:
