Consultation on proposed changes to the Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill junction, Hereford 24 February to 10 March 2017. This consultation is closed.

This consultation is closed.

City Link Road

Why is the link road needed?

The City Link Road (CLR) is part of a larger scale inner city regeneration project including the Old Market, Widemarsh Street, Merton Meadow car park and other key areas within the city. It will provide hundreds of new homes and help provide hundreds of new jobs.

In the region of 800 new homes, 35 per cent of which will be affordable, are planned to be built across the site. The new road will open up access to areas for development and regeneration which are currently inaccessible or difficult to access and it will also alleviate some of the volume of heavy traffic from Hereford's inner ring road.

Its forms part of a package of measures which will enable Commercial Road, Newmarket and Blueschool Streets to be upgraded for easier pedestrian movement and also reduce 'through traffic' which will be transferred to the link road. Improvements will also include the provision of a new transport hub at the railway station.

If you have any questions about the development please contact Mairead Lane on 01432 260944.

Barrs Court Road / Aylestone Hill junction consultation

We consulted with local residents on proposed changes to the Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill junction. The consultation looked at changes relating to right turns into and out of the Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill junction.

There were three options being considered:

  • Option 0 was initially prepared to support the City Link Road proposals and which has planning approval
  • Option 1 includes additional measure on Hopton Road
  • Option 2 is similar to Option 1 but allows right turns into Barrs Court Road from Aylestone Hill.

The closing date for responses was 10 March 2017.


Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd has been awarded the construction contract for the road which will take approximately 18 months to complete. Alun Griffiths will commence work in early September.
