THE future of transport infrastructure in Royston was on show at two exhibitions in the town.
Residents got a chance to look at the urban transport plan for Royston at the exhibitions held at Royston town hall.
The plan, devised by Hertfordshire county council in conjunction with North Herts district council, includes the introduction of new toucan crossings in Melbourn Road and Old North Road, the widening of pavements in Fish Hill and upgrades to Royston bus station.
These projects identified in the plan will all be completed within the next five years.
Speaking at last week's meeting of the district council's Royston area committee, Simon Young, the district council's planning policy officer, said: "We had more than 30 people come along and view the plans at the first exhibition, and we've already received a lot of feedback forms too."
Cllr Fiona Hill, chairman of the committee, said: "It is good to see that people have seen the plans and want to get involved."
