The Hereford City Centre Transport Package includes a new link road between the A465 and A49 (opened in December 2017), enabling the mixed-use development of a significant area of under-utilised land integrated with the city centre, a new transport hub at Hereford railway station and the refurbishment of routes between the station and City improving conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and public transport.
Project funding – Growth Deal funding: £16m and local authority funding of £24.545m.
The South Wye Transport Package includes a new 3.6km Southern Link Road linking the A49(T) with the A465 and B4349 to the south of the city, 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.
Following a change in administration, Herefordshire Council is currently reviewing the Southern Link Road to determine next steps.
Project funding – Growth Deal funding: £27m and local authority funding of £8m.
