  1. Today
  2. In The Hereford Times 25th January 2020 I pick up litter once a week in an area around where I live, usually on Monday as any cans or plastic bottle and any other recyclable items can go in my green bin before the dustmen empty it on Tuesday. It does make a difference to the street scene. The other thing that needs doing is clearing the kerbs of weeds - this does make the area looked after. To get an idea of the problem on the estates look at my previous posts under I told you it would get worse!
  3. On the phone to council's regarding rubbish and recycling. No definite phone number on website on who to speak to so rang 260000 and went through their introductory message. Pressed the extension required and put on hold "one of our customer service team will be with you shortly". 10 mins later after being thanked for holding the message. said I could go to the website www.herefordshire.gov.uk and this put me back to where I started. A page of departmental phone numbers on one page on the website would be helpful to dial direct rather than jumping through hoops at the council's convenience. After all this would be the list of numbers their receptionists would use to put you through to.
  4. you can ring Hereford 260000 when the operator replies, tell him which dept you want and he will put you through. this number operated between 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Originally penned by Mr James himself. However it has also been noted that many of Hereford Voice inceptions have been hijacked by HC and recently be re-aired. Not a bad thing but credit where it's due please.
  7. Yet again Hereford City Council mistaken for Herefordshire Council, but good publicity for the proposal nonetheless, Can't come soon enough in my view, but everything is beginning to take rather too long. Just pick a simple one to start with and do it now!
  8. Last week
  9. Pity there was no mention of Hereford Voice in this bulletin
  10. Traffic Lights Out Trial Hereford. Hereford Voice have been campaigning for years to have some of the traffic lights in Hereford (not pedestrian lights) turned off, as most agree with our motto, 'The Traffic Just Flows' when the lights have been out in the past. It is looking like we may have a trial sometime this summer. This was featured on this evenings ITV News #HerefordVoice
  11. We were advised last year that the bypass had bee paused, we have to wait yet another 6 months, frustrating indeed, I did believe that the new council would be more proactive than this tbh
  12. I think they must have turned it off and on again - it's all ticketyboo again, bonuses all round.
  13. Once again, the whole Council website is down - 503 Service Unavailable No server is available to handle this request. Unbelievable that this can happen - it simply shouldn't and there are standard ways to ensure it doesn't. I read somewhere the other day that Hoople are a standing joke in the IT world and this is a good example. But no one in charge will do anything, as ever, and everyone gets paid handsomely regardless.
  14. Talking of easy wins. The development of the transport hub is now really just a joke. It has been talked about since the decision to build the link road. Just how long does it take to design a place where buses, taxis and cycles can interchange? You could almost design it on the back of the proverbial *** packet. Of course we are promised a public consultation on it but I cannot see any actual construction for a couple of years. It's just more money spent (loads for consultants) but no progress. And in the background is that once its built the bus station will be available for development. It just shows the ineptitude at the heart of the Council - a lack of leadership and direction
  15. East Bridge will end up somewhere around Hampton Park as it won't cross the Lugg flats so the locals will love that.
  16. Most of us will be dead n buried by the time anything is done. Why not show us you are really keen to aliviate some of the major problems in the City by starting with an easy one John which will cost nothing at all. Switch them bloody lights off on the Newmarket Roundabout.
  17. A decision paper has been published (16 January 2020) that outlines the work that will take place to assess the Hereford bypass and Southern link road schemes while carrying out a wider review of the transport strategy for Hereford. Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport, said: While the review is under way a number of transport and travel schemes will be progressing, including the development of a high quality transport hub at Hereford railway station and improvements to public spaces and facilities for cyclists and pedestrians across the city. The decision will be taken by Cllr Harrington on Friday 24 January 2020. The review is expected to take around six months to complete and will include consultation with the public and stakeholder organisations.
  18. I read somewhere that 2 bridges are being considered - East and West
  19. Ok so your not against a river crossing going from Beattie Avenue & linking up with Wordsworth road? as for a river crossing taking HGV’s that could be done on the east connecting Rotherwas with the Worcester road? the total distance for this two river crossing would be about 6.32 km which is half of the distance of the western bypass route obviously this is all hypothetical but if the western bypass is cancelled then the need is to look at alternatives river crossings?
  20. He definitely was not a police informant. I think this rumour may have come about due to his business relations with the police, which was mutual. Ike liked to get most of the accident damage pick-ups, while the police knew that he was very quick and had all the equipment to do the job right.
  21. These wood type buildings usually look great for about 5 -7 years then they can look really old
  22. This would be okay for cyclists with a weight limit but we still desperately need a vehicle river crossing able to take HGV's etc
  23. Will they won’t they lay the tarmac down for the new bypass? if indeed it does get binned it still does not get away from the fact that Hereford needs at lest one new river crossing either east or west or both. I’m not sure if this idea has been mooted before? But as an alternative river crossing point on the west side if the western bypass is rejected? I believe that it would be possible to put a bridge with weight limits on & cycle lanes from the bottom of Beattie avenue To link up with Wordsworth road? a number of benefits would be a direct road link with Whitecross & Belmont the road would be a lot shorter in distance saving on cost compared to the western bypass...less loss of good agricultural land very few if any trees would have to be felled...so in all compared to the western bypass the detrimental impact to the landscape would far less.
