A TOWN centre road will close for a day as work is carried out to install fibre internet cables in the area.

Rowberry Street, in Bromyard, will be closed on Monday, April 17, as Full Fibre carry out the rural fibre installation works.

The road will be closed between Merchants Court and Twyning Street, with traffic diverted via Tenbury Road, Porthouse Industrial Estate, Station Road and Church Street.


In a public notice published by Herefordshire Council, it said the closure was needed due to rural fibre installation works and the likelihood of danger to the public while the works are taking place.

Standard broadband is delivered over copper wire.

Fibre broadband is different because it uses faster and more reliable fibre-optic cables.
