Trees likely to come down on Edgar Street in Hereford
A NUMBER of trees could still be cut down to enable an additional lane to be built on Edgar Street in Hereford.
The Highways Agency confirmed today that its scheme will go ahead as planned, but stated that any lost trees will be replaced with ones of similar species.
A total of 14 lime trees currently stand on the southern end of Edgar Street.
A campaigning group called “Save Edgar Street Trees” was started to keep the chainsaws away.
The additional lane will be built on the right-hand side of the southbound carriageway to improve the flow of traffic entering the roundabout.
The £462,000 scheme, which is part of a three-part “pinch-point” programme set out by the Highways Agency to help congestion in the city, is due to start within the next couple of months.
