Herefordshire Council Notice

WARD COUNCILLOR'S NEWSLETTER (DECEMBER 2017)

The Councilís highway services secured £5 million from the Department for Transport towards an £8 million project to improve road conditions on strategic 'A' roads in the County. The Councilís bid for the Challenge Fund is based on a detailed business case that covers the economic, safety and environmental benefits of the investment over a 30year period.

The work was allocated from Government and commenced in August 2017. The funding has to be used before March 2018 when the government funding will be no longer available

This work will support economic growth in the region by investing in transport routes leading to Herefordshire's Skylon Park Enterprise Zone and the Midlands Connect strategic economic corridors, which include the A4103 Hereford to Worcester road, the A465 Hereford to Abergavenny road and the A438 Hereford to Brecon road. The funding enables the resurfacing of 37 miles of road on key transport routes. The works will enable £146m of benefit to the local economy as a whole.

The works are to entire routes and use a variety of resurfacing and surface treatments. All treatments have been designed, based on the current condition of these roads, to return them to a good condition throughout and to maximise their service life, thereby providing a solution that minimises the whole life cost of maintenance.

The resurfacing works on the A4103 have therefore required road closures along the route over the course of 8 weeks to enable the completion of all the resurfacing required to address the condition of this route. Road closures are now lifted and traffic towards Worcester is now flowing as usual - and on a much better surface.

Representatives from Old Market, Hereford BID, Maylord Orchards and independent retailers, Tanners Wines and Fodder, have come together to champion Hereford being open for Christmas.

The significant improvement work taking place to the Cityís roads will stop at the end of November until January 2018, to encourage shoppers into Hereford in the run up to the festive period.

The new City Link Road will be open as you read this, which is just in time for the busiest shopping period of the year, providing access to Merton Meadow car park from Widemarsh Street and improved movement across the city centre.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year
