ROADWORKS on a main Herefordshire road have been delayed again.

The work, which is being carried out by the council, is on the B4224 in Fownhope near Hereford.

According to the council, it has not yet been carried out due to poor weather and wet ground conditions. 

It was scheduled to be done last night (March 6), but more delays were faced as workers were still unable to complete it.

A spokesperson for Fownhope Parish Council: "Unfortunately the conditions at Fownhope were still too wet to apply the lining. We are very conscious of the constant back and forth with bad news surrounding this, and looking at the weather forecast we are expecting more rain. We will discuss the best way forwards with this and will provide an update to you."


The work will be to implement traffic calming measures in the village.

The road was previously closed for two weeks in February, as resurfacing work was done.

This affected many people and businesses in the area, who originally were told access would be maintained to their properties, but were then asked to use the diversion.

The miscommunication from Balfour Beatty Living Places caused "confusion" and prompted apologies from Herefordshire Council and councillor Barry Durkin.

The clerk to the parish council, Helen Tinson, said at the time: "There have been errors in communication from Balfour Beatty."
