The Hereford Bypass will increase:
A49 Traffic across the county
Congestion in Hereford City
The Hereford Bypass, also referred to as the Western Relief Road (WRR) by Herefordshire County Council, is a proposed road and high level river crossing through the green lung of Hereford. At best, it will relieve only 15% of traffic in the city. However, the planned housing and diverted motorway traffic that goes alongside it means that traffic into Hereford will actually increase.
This is not a Bypass! This is not the answer to congestion in Hereford! This will drastically increase A49 traffic!
The combined developments are a severe threat to human health, local industry, and our environment from Leominster to Ross on Wye.
