Taken from Herefordshire Council newsdesk.

 

Work will commence to improve the junction of King street and Bridge street in Hereford.

The scheme is due to begin with preliminary works on site on Monday 27th January 2014, and is likely to last 6 to 7 weeks. The scheme is being completed with minimum disruption to traffic flows.

 

The narrowing and realignment of the King Street exit will slow and reposition emerging vehicles to provide a better view of approaching cyclists and vehicles. Colour surfacing and new street furniture will create more of a "shared space" feel which will help vehicle behaviour.

 

Reducing number of bollards and existing sign posts to improve overall view and visibility. Pedestrian crossing locations will be better defined and the overall layout will be more pedestrian friendly.

 

the funding scheme is a match funding between Herefordshire council and Department for Transport Cycle Safety Fund.

 

END.

Lets hope this has nothing to do with the highway robbery agency after the £260,000 rip off Asda improvement

I don't see the problem, it's a junction, use it like any other junction.

 

If anything, they just need to stop people parking on left of Bridge Street so that you can see more from the Kings Street junction.

 

I'm constantly baffled as to how people struggle so much with the basic concepts of driving.
