Fed up with the misleading adverts about roadbuilding in the Hereford Times?

The proposals for the ‘Bypass’ were to enable massive urban expansions over flood plains. This is a bad idea given increased flooding and climate change.
The adverts being posted in the Hereford Times weekly and paid for by a private business man, Frank Meyers, claim that the ‘bypass’ would reduce pollution and congestion and improve residents’ wellbeing.
There is no evidence to support these claims and, in fact, there is a plethora of evidence to show that the opposite is true on all counts.
Had enough of the lies?
It will not reduce pollution.
It will not reduce congestion.
It will not increase city residents’ wellbeing!
Seven years of construction followed by increased housing pressure with an average of 7 car trips per day, mostly going into the city sounds more like our worst nightmare.
The research shows that frequent, affordable public transport like buses and trams enable young people to work and live in an area long term, improve local economies and improve health.
Think about the increasing pollution and congestion from 16,500 new houses.
If you think it's not a good idea to increase road capacity before improving public transport and safe cycling tell them so.
Why not take some top tips from the letter in this week's paper from Barry Jenkinson.
