Herefordshire Council choose the Red Route for the proposed Western Bypass
On Friday 27th July Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet confirmed that their preferred route for the proposed bypass is the RED route through Breinton. This crosses the River Wye just downstream from Warham House, cuts across the Community Farm and meets Kings Acre Road by the Bay Horse public house
All the reports and background appendices remain available on the Herefordshire Council website. Follow the link here.
We suggest that you start with the Preferred Route Report before you dive into the detail.
Prior to the Cabinet’s decision, the General Scrutiny Committee considered the choice of route on 18th July. They took a long time before accepting the route being recommended and found it difficult to probe the route choices very deeply.
