The Hereford Bypass
The Hereford Bypass is a proposed new road to the west of the city. We are consulting on seven potential routes all of which include a new river crossing. The bypass would support the delivery of 6,500 homes and 6,000 jobs, a new university and expansion of the Hereford Enterprise Zone at Rotherwas.
Walking, cycling, bus and public space improvements
The bypass will enable the delivery of a package of measures in the city to increase walking, cycling and bus use for short distance journeys and a more attractive and healthier public space. The aim of the consultation is to give everyone the opportunity to find out more and give their views on the proposed bypass routes and a range of active travel measures for Hereford. The responses received from this consultation along with further evidence gathered will help formulate the next stage in the preparation of the Hereford Transport Package.
