  1. Having Your Say | Hereford Voice 'Councillor Sessions' Q&A Continued - Part 6 🔷Transport Strategy (Bypass Bikes, Bridges)🔷 These are divided up into 3 separate responses - part 1/3 At Hereford Voice our slogan has always been 'Having Your Say' and through our network we are going to give you the opportunity to ask your questions to some of our Councillors. Cabinet Member - Infrastructure and Transport Councillor John Harrington agreed to be put under the spotlight and to answer as many questions put to him in our first exclusive 'Councillor Sessions' series here https://hfd.news/eec Today in part 6 of our series Cllr Harrington responds to questions about the 'Hereford Bypass' part 1/3. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Cllr Harrington for agreeing to be the first of many councillors who will be engaging with you all this year as part of our 'exclusive' Hereford Voice 'Councillor Sessions' #herefordvoice #herefordnews #herefordshire #hfdvcs
  2. Herefordshire Council has taken the decision to cease work on a western bypass for Hereford at Full Council today (Tuesday 2 February 2021). Council has determined to stop the progress of the southern link road and western bypass schemes, which are included in the adopted policy. A suggested amendment was debated but not approved. The decision follows a detailed review of the transport strategy for Hereford which set out to better understand existing and future transport conditions in the city, and to assess alternative options particularly in light of the declared climate and ecological emergency and changes to national transport policy. The votes cast were 27 for, 19 against and 6 abstentions. All 52 councillors were present and voted. The decision means that the Hereford Transport Package will be removed from the council’s capital programme. The council meeting can be viewed again on the council’s Youtube channel.
  3. County councillors on the scrutiny committee have urged leaders to ditch plans for a bypass west of Hereford in favour of a preferred an eastern river crossing option. If cabinet agree with this option this could see the construction of an additional river crossing creating an eastern link road connecting Rotherwas with Ledbury Road or Hampton Park Road. Other options included the idea of a water bus but there was more focus on improving walking and cycling networks, buses and possible 'part-time traffic light system' an idea initiated many years ago and heavily campaigned for by Hereford Voice however, it was clear from the meeting that more consideration should be given to making more use of the river which flows through the heart of Hereford. Cabinet is expected to debate these options at a meeting scheduled for December.
  4. Breaking News: We have been reliably informed that a western river crossing crossing in Hereford won't be achieved (via current plans, being reviewed at the moment by the new administration) for at least 7 years - or longer! - what should be done in the short to medium term to solve our congestion issues? Should we look at other options or concentrate on a bypass? The focus for the new council is to seek alternatives to a bypass in the short term, such as a better infrastructure for cyclists, electric buses serving the city and surrounding towns and villages. Developing popular schemes like turning off a number of traffic lights (not pedestrian lights) as part of a trail in an attempt to reduce the daily congestion within the city. None of the above is diverting from a bypass but in reality, even if the go-ahead was given tomorrow morning for a second river crossing, there are many time consuming procedures that have to be followed, for example; Consultations with government bodies and various departments and also the local residents whom would live within area of the new bridge. A business plan has to be presented then an application for planning which alone can take 18 - 24 months, following all of this, if planning permission is finally granted, then the council need to look at compulsory purchases, again, this can take several years. Finally, once all signed off the bridge and roads need to be built! We are currently running a simple yes/no poll on Hereford Voice to see whether local people believe Hereford needs a bypass and from almost 2000 votes in less than a week the results clearly show an overwhelming 89% of people want a bypass, which comes as no real surprise however, as you can see from the explanation above, it's not likely to happen before 2030, with this in mind, perhaps we should embrace and explore all other alternatives in the meantime.. #HerefordVoice #Herefordbypass #Hereford
  5. The Secretary of State for Transport has confirmed the compulsory purchase and side road orders for the southern link road in Hereford. The southern link road, which will be constructed from the A49 to the A465 and linking to the B4349 Clehonger Road, will provide easier access to the Hereford Enterprise Zone, and looks to reduce congestion on current routes and increase capacity at key junctions, bringing significant improvement especially to the Belmont and Lower Bullingham areas. The construction of the new road will commence later this year when the necessary statutory process are completed and will be complemented by improved walking and cycling routes so that residents can make healthier choices about how they travel. The confirmation of the orders has been received following the outcome of a public inquiry held in late October / early November 2018. Copies of the confirmed orders and associated plans will be available to view from Thursday 21 March 2019 at Blueschool House in Hereford, HR1 2LX. There is the opportunity to appeal the validity of the orders or the decision-making process (not the decision). Any appeal must be submitted by 16 May 2019.
