Route Decision Finally Made on Bypass

Herefordshire County Council considered reports and recommendations regarding the Hereford Transport Package at a meeting today (Friday 27 July) at Shire Hall following shortlisting in January 2018.

A public consultation was carried out through February and March to assess the public view of the Hereford Transport Package, including proposed bypass routes and active travel measures. Following today’s cabinet approval, the red route will now be taken forward for further scheme development and consultation later this year.

Cabinet approved the red route from a selection of shortlisted possibilties

Considerable work has been undertaken by the the County Council to assess environmental, engineering, economic and traffic factors affecting the different routes. Based on this technical work and the public consultation feedback, detailed reports were produced to recommend the red route as the preferred bypass route corridor.

The route takes a path along the West side of the city and crosses the River Wye at Breinton.
Cllr Philip Price, cabinet member for infrastructure, said: “We are committed to keeping local residents and businesses fully updated and involved, and we encourage people to take part in the further consultation later this year. Your feedback is vital in helping to shape how we move forward.

“The proposed bypass will improve connectivity to the rest of the UK, create the infrastructure to enable business growth and support new housing, improve options for walking and cycling and help to alleviate Hereford’s traffic congestion problems. It is of huge strategic value for the entire region.”

    Martha to Help Two Charities at Once

    Alfie Hyett passed away following a tragic accident in 2016.

    Eight year old Martha Jinks is raising money for Bodie Hodges Foundation in memory of her cousin Alfie Hyett, who lost his life in a tragic accident at home two years ago.

    Alfie Hyett passed away following a tragic accident in 2016.

    The Foundation provides welcome respite and support to families mourning the loss of a child, and are huge advocates of the Organ Donor register.

    Brave Martha is cutting her hair to raise money for the Foundation who helped her Aunt Louise through the loss of Alfie, but donating the hair cut off to Herefordshire based charity The Little Princess Trust who help children who have suffered hair loss.

    Mum Ellie spoke to us of her daughter’s selflessness,”As you can imagine I am extremely proud of her, she is only 8 and the amount of support we have received is phenomenal, in 3 weeks Martha has raised £473 totalling £570 including gift aid! We are hoping to get a lot more support!”

    Eight year old Martha is raising money for one charity and donating her hair to another.

    The date for her hair to be chopped is 21st August, so there’s still plenty of time to support Martha’s fundraising: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/LouiseHembrow

    Community Group Sign Station Deal

    Hereford Community Clean Up Group last week signed an agreement with Arriva Trains Wales to clear, clean and maintain the raised shrubbery beds at Hereford Railway Station.

    It was a member of the group, Jane Denny, who first raised the problem of the overgrown and unsightly raised planters at Hereford Railway Station. She, along with other members of the group, contacted Arriva Trains Wales (who are responsible for the stations upkeep) and arranged to meet them to discuss what could be done about the eyesore that Hereford Station had become in recent years. After numerous meetings, health and safety briefings and site visits, the voluntary group have now signed an agreement with the transport giant to take responsibility for the station’s flower beds.

    The community group goes from strength to strength, attracting the sponsorship of many local businesses. This week O H Mower Services of Sweetmans Yard, generously donated a large amount of hand gardening tools to help the volunteers in their efforts to restore the raised beds to their former glory, and make Hereford Railway Station a joy to stop at.
