Hafod Road will be closed from the 16th May 2014 for approximately 23 days. Access to Brockington council offices will be maintained and public meetings will go ahead as usual.
The work is being undertaken by JSM Group on behalf of Western Power Distribution. The works are part of a major infrastructure scheme to reinforce the electricity supply to Hereford city centre.
JSM Group has scanned Hafod Road to investigate alternative methods of delivering the work but the only option is to lay the power cable in the centre of the carriageway. Hence, the requirement of a full closure to facilitate safe working practices.
During the works, access to Hafod Road and Brockington will be restricted depending on the location of the works; a diversion route will be in place and access to Brockington will be maintained with one or other entrance being restricted at any given time.
The diversion route will be subject to change but will be signed. The current diversion route is Ledbury Road, Quarry Road and Hafod Road, access via Vine Road will be an alternative route.
We expect delays throughout the duration of the work. Plan your journey, check traffic congestion http://herefordshire.roadworks.org/ and please consider walking or cycling if you are visiting Brockington.
Please check https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/transport-and-highways/maintenance/roads-closures-and-diversions/ for diversion routes as these will change as works progress.
