Hereford’s looking up, with new bee-friendly bus shelters 🐝 When you’re next out and about, you may notice that three ‘green’ bus shelters with living plants on the roofs have been installed at the Red Barn Drive stop on Yazor Road, and the Memorial and Victoria bus stops on Whitecross Road. The roofs are planted with 16 different varieties of Sedum plants, which are known to have many benefits for the environment. As plants they help absorb CO2 and release oxygen, while their flowers are also great for bees providing a haven and a welcome food source for many different pollinators along the urban roadsides. The sedum plants can also filter fine dust particles and so help to purify air, cutting pollution levels and they can help to capture rain water - all while bringing a little bit of nature into the City. Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet member for Infrastructure and Transport, said: Read more about the Externiture City Haven shelters and their benefits at externiture.com Herefordshire Council is also running a Bus Service Improvement Survey from Friday 16 July to Sunday 15 August.
