Hereford Southern Link Road Approved

Herefordshire Council’s planning committee has approved the Southern Link Road. The council has secured £27m of Central Government funding for the SLR.

The city’s long-awaited bypass is a part of a 15 year transport plan for the city which will assist in delivering thousands of new homes and new jobs.

The first part of the route runs from the A49 south of Hereford, to the A465.

The road’s construction will also facilitate the implementation of active travel measures in South Wye. Plans include prohibition weight restriction on Belmont Road, shared use cycleways, new pedestrian crossings on Belmont Road and new speed restrictions in residential areas.

Councillor Philip Price, cabinet member infrastructure said the “decision is a significant move forward as it is the first step towards a long-awaited bypass. Hereford can now move towards a more financially sustainable future, with the provision of more homes and jobs.”

The SLR is scheduled to be completed by summer 2019. The rest of the bypass will be completed when further funding can be secured from the Government. Subject to funding the bypass in its entirety will be constructed between 2022 and 2027.
