ONE of Hereford's main streets could have speed humps, raised pedestrian crossings and a 20-mph speed limit under a new school safety initiative.

The area around St Thomas Cantilupe Primary School, including Widemarsh Street, is to be the subject of a consultation exercise to decide what road safety measures to implement.

Councillor Chris Grover, county council cabinet member for the environment said: "These roads have a poor accident record and will benefit from these measures."

Plans, for Widemarsh Street, Blackfriars Street, Conningsby Street, Catherine Street, Canal Road and Monkmoor Street, will go on display at the St John Ambulance HQ on Widemarsh Street between 10.30am and 8pm on Friday, January 17.
