Answer for A1 Stirling Corner to Borehamwood Junction

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS is committed to improving public confidence concerning the safety of road journeys made in the capital. This is achieved through a combination of problem solving and traffic enforcement activities.

MPS Traffic Officers patrol the A1 corridor from Stirling Corner on a daily basis; covering enforcement activities and dealing with calls. MPS Officers regularly liaise with officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary and there is a close working relationship between the Traffic Units.

The MPS works in partnership with Local Authority Road Safety Officers to deliver road safety initiatives and improve the safety of the road infrastructure.  Education to change the behaviour of road users is delivered through diversionary courses, schools presentations, the Commercial Vehicle Unit and the Motorcycle Safety Team.
