Patients and visitors are being advised that the main access road into Hereford County Hospital – Stonebow Road – will temporarily become one-way to allow National Grid to carry out works.

The temporary road system will be in place from Monday next week, January 30, to allow work on the substation and cables within Stonebow Road.

Motorists will continue to be able to access the hospital along this road, but traffic leaving the site will have to do so via the Union Walk access road.

Diversion signs will be in place while the work is carried out.

The road is expected to be back to full use by Wednesday, February 22.
