The signal has a short history of the railway and was erected as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations in 2015 by a local resident who has been restoring the station and keeping the cycle route in immaculate condition. See the station sign in #74089 and also look out for the clock and other signs.

Despite lobbying by local cyclists the island has been constructed to pedestrian only standards requiring cyclists to dismount and creating an unnecessarily difficult crossing for tricycles and tandems.

74068Photo #74068Subway under Great North Road Hatfield.

This could be used to divert NCN12 away from a busy roundabout, but rulled out because the subway is too low to be legally acceptable. Hertfordshire County Council should take the view this is still safer than the roundabout shown in #74069. View from east end #74077.

Note that the subway is only a footway, not shared use, hence the white line to define the cycle route.
