A dual carriageway in Stevenage has been closed by Hertfordshire Highways due to flooding.

Martins Way is currently closed from the junction with Grace Way to the junction with Hitchin Road.

The road is flooded under the bridge - a hotspot for flooding when there are heavy downpours.


The flooding caused traffic congestion in Martins Way last night (Tuesday), before the road was closed.

Traffic has been flowing around the area this morning, with some minor congestion at times.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Highways said: "This section of Martins Way was closed last night due to flooding. We are investigating the problem and will reopen the road as soon as possible."
