Public exhibition for South Wye Transportation Package

Herefordshire residents will have an opportunity to view plans and give feedback about traffic and transportation issues affecting the south wye area of Hereford. The council will hold a public exhibition from Tuesday 1 to Thursday 3 July (from 12 noon to 8pm each day) at the Three Counties Hotel, Hereford. The exhibition will display a number of options that have been considered for addressing problems in the area.

Residents are encouraged to come along and give their views and opinions on the transportation problems and the options that have been identified to deal with these.

Following the exhibitions people will be able to feedback their comments until 8 August 2014.

Cllr Price, cabinet member infrastructure said “Traffic flows on the A465 are forecast to increase over time as a result of economic growth. The aims of this study are to look at ways to reduce congestion, pollution and social deprivation in the south wye area. In order to do this, it is important that we consult widely with local residents and stakeholders.

I would urge anyone with any interest in this project to come along to the public exhibition and see the options that have been identified to deal with the continually growing transport problems in the south of the city. Everyone will be given an opportunity to voice their opinion on the outcomes of the initial stages of the project and we welcome them to do so.”
