MOTORISTS travelling through Hereford city centre were met with delays this morning, as more major works began on Newmarket Street.

The work to Widemarsh Gate began this week with one lane closed in either direction on Newmarket Street.

During this period, traffic lights will be used to assist with regulation traffic flow and pedestrian crossing locations will be slightly altered.

The gates at the junction of Widemarsh Street and Newmarket Street will remain closed for the duration of the work to help with traffic flow.

The traffic lights at the bottom of Widemarsh Street near the Herdsman pub have been “bagged” and the left-turning exit from Widemarsh Street is now a give-way junction.
