  5. Bypass '50:50 chance' of being scrapped

    BBC Hereford and Worcester

    A long-planned bypass is in serious doubt, with a councillor saying there's now just a "50:50 chance" it will go ahead.

    Proposed bypass route

    The route of the Hereford bypass and southern link road was approved in 2018 but then paused last year by Herefordshire Council after a group of independents took control of the authority following elections.

    Now a councillor leading a review into traffic in the city is suggesting more river bridges are built as an alternative to help ease congestion.

    Other possible schemes include turning off the traffic lights at key junctions, a light railway on the Great Western Way and more separated routes for cycling and walking.

    Councillor John Harrington led the review and said these ideas "are things that we could do much, much more quickly and would have a greater impact I think on congestion".

    The suggestions are part of the review and the council said climate change would play a major part in any decisions made in the future.
