Councillor committed to £27m Hereford road
3:42pm Monday 11th March 2013 in News
A leading cabinet member has said Hereford’s £27m link road is “going to happen” despite the extent of opposition.
Speaking to full council, Councillor Graham Powell, cabinet member for infrastructure, told critics of the scheme that the road was “vital” to the regeneration of Hereford.
“It’s change and I know you bloody well don’t like it but it’s going to happen,” he said, before apologising for his language.
Coun Powell was responding to the county’s “Meet Us Halfway” Local Transport Plan which covers the next two years.
The plan’s big pitches are cutting congestion in Hereford city to encourage walking and cycling and better transport access for market towns and rural communities.
