ANOTHER bridge coming from Breinton would be an absolute waste of money and completely pointless but a flyover/bypass coming from the Abergavenny road and down Belmont Road is a must.

This is where traffic is bad from just past the Kingstone turning to Asda roundabout towards town it clears then after Asda.


It takes me a hour and half minimum to get from mine across here to do the school runs at Lugwardine and Venns Lane then get to work at the County Hospital, yet when I did the journey for 15 years from Bromyard it took 20 minutes to get to Lugwardine then a further 10 to get to Venns Lane, just straight there, no hassle or drama and it’s much further away.

This is what everyone has to cope with going from here and down the Belmont Road is just unacceptable.

It’s bad for your mental health and well-being.

I know I’m not the only one who feels like this!

The children are now spending approximately  two and a half hours on top of their already tiring school day.

It’s ridiculous we have to leave at 7.15am every day and that’s still a push.

I have to get up at 5am when before it was 7am!
