City Link Road

Barrs Court Road / Aylestone Hill junction consultation

Herefordshire Council is consulting with local residents on proposed changes to the Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill junction. The consultation looks at changes relating to right turns into and out of the Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill junction. 

There are 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.

You can also view a full set of technical drawings.

We would welcome the views of residents on the consultation proposals.

About the City Link Road

The recent development of the Old Market leisure complex has been extremely successful and the City Link Road will allow land in the Edgar Street Grid area of Hereford to be further developed as an ‘urban village’.

This urban village will help address the county’s housing needs and help make Herefordshire a more attractive place to live, work and visit. Around a third of the development will be affordable housing to help attract younger people to Hereford city. The City Link Road will also help relieve some of the traffic from the centre of Hereford, particularly on Commercial Road and Blueschool Street. It will also make it easier and more enjoyable to walk and cycle around Hereford city.

The refurbishment of Blueschool Street, Commercial Road and Newmarket Street will provide an environment similar to that of the Old Market development. It will create a more attractive area for residents of the urban village, which is the housing project planned for the Merton Meadow site and for all those using Hereford city centre.

Arriving in Hereford by bus or train, you are likely to walk from the station along Blueschool Street, Commercial Road and Newmarket Street. The refurbishment of these areas will make the walk or cycle into Hereford city centre more pleasurable, helping people lead healthier and more active lives. It will also be easier for visitors and residents to use buses and trains at a new ‘transport hub.’

The City Link Road will be built as part of the ‘Hereford city centre transport package’ with funding secured from the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership.
