National Grid is undertaking work in Edgar Street to install a gas supply to an adjacent property. Traffic management is needed in order to do this and National Grid had agreed with the Highways Agency to close the approaching lane between the hours of 09.30 and 15.30 to avoid congestion during peak travelling times.
Herefordshire Council was not made aware of the works and we are working hard to encourage a change in the traffic management arrangements to reduce the impact of these gas works. Currently the work is due to continue until Friday 16 May, however, we are negotiating with the Highways Agency and National Grid to reduce this time by looking at alternative working practices.
We will continue to speak to the Highways Agency and National Grid and will update our Twitter feed and Facebook page as we receive more information. In the meantime please consider alternative means of travelling into the city and check congestion by clicking on the Google traffic information link on the right of this page.
