The road was originally constructed as a trunk route by the Highways Agency as the second part of a two phase improvement of the A10 between Ware and Cheshunt. On 29 September 2006 the road was de-trunked, and the viaduct is now the responsibility of Hertfordshire County Council.
The expansion joints were replaced by the Highways Agency in July 2005.
Improvements to the Bridge Parapets to bring them up to modern standards were carried out by Hertfordshire from July to September 2008 (This included installing new High Containment Parapets over the Railway).
