The Hereford City Centre Transport Package is a four year project, including a new link road between the A465 and A49, which will enable a mixed-use development including 800 new homes, integrated with the city centre and maximising the potential of a significant area of under-utilised land in a highly sustainable location for both Hereford and the county.
This project is currently on pause due to a decision by Herefordshire Council.
Project funding – Growth Deal funding: £16m and local authority funding of £14.545m.
The South Wye Transport Package includes a new 3.6km long Southern Link Road linking the A49(T) with the A465 and B4349 to the south of the city (the first leg of the Hereford relief road), integrated with a set of measures to improve travel opportunities and conditions for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users in the South Wye area. The scheme will improve access to the Hereford Enterprise Zone, create 1,000 new jobs and 1,000 new houses, and will reduce congestion and air pollution in the Belmont area of Hereford.
This project will be fully completed in 2020/21.
Project funding – Growth Deal funding: £27m and local authority funding of £8m.
