Widemarsh Street, Hereford
The section of Widemarsh Street refurbished forms a link between the inner ring road which encompasses the historic city walls of Hereford and the main pedestrian area of Hightown.
The approximate area is 2000m2, the street varies in width between 8m-12m and is approximately 200m long. The area is pedestrian only between the hours of 10.30am-16.30pm. Mid-way along Widemarsh Street, Maylord Street was also re-furbished as part of the works.
The works consisted of re-paving the street with natural stone, installing new drainage where required and street furniture to provide a more pedestrian friendly and attractive route into the city centre of Hereford. The following materials were utilised:
- Footway areas – Pennant sandstone flags/setts
- Kerbs and channel blocks – Granite and Porphyry
- Carriageway areas – Porphyry stone subes/setts.
The project was completed on time and on budget allowing the street to be fully opened for the busy Christmas shopping period.
