Herts County Council is developing a three-month consultation on its Vision For Transport, setting out its strategy to 2050.

Between now and then the county’s population is expected to increase by around 400,000 to over 1.5million people, with huge impact on congestion and journey times, particularly during peak travel periods.

Council projections for the next 15 years show that car journeys at peak times will increase by 25 per cent – meaning workers will need an extra 15 minutes for what is now an hour-long commute.

The consultation will be launched in September.
