There is still time to share your experience of travel and transport in the City

The transport strategy for Hereford is being reviewed to ensure that there is the infrastructure needed for travel in the City now and into the future. 

The review includes an assessment of the proposed Hereford Bypass and Southern Link Road, alongside alternative options that could deliver improvements more quickly and at lower cost. This will include the possibility of a new river crossing, removal of traffic lights on key routes, an electric bus fleet for the urban bus network and improvements that provide safer routes for pupils to walk and cycle to school. 

We are asking local people to provide their input by sharing their current experience of travel and transport in Hereford and ideas for what would make their journey better.

Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport, said: “This review is vital to inform the way we move forward to improve transport in the City. We are an administration that listens to local people, and represents the views of our communities in our plans and directions, and in no area is this more important than our transport network and public spaces.

“There is a lot of local knowledge, opinions and ideas out there and there are still two weeks for people to get in touch. I would encourage anyone who works or lives in Hereford, as well as visitors, to take part and have their say on the future of travel and transport in the City.”

To take part please go to travelinhereford.commonplace.is.

The review is expected to be completed by 31 July 2020.
