Double yellow lines are to be put outside John Kyrle High School as part of a county-wide set to changes of Herefordshire roads.

The council says that the lines will be placed around the bus stop outside the school to prevent parents from parking “inconsiderately”.

Double yellow lines will also be brought in along several roads in Leominster including limited waiting and resident permit holder restrictions, including Worcester Road, Rainbow Street, School Road, Etnam Street, as well as The Priory.

Other changes throughout the county will include an extension to the 50mph speed limit on the A44 between Leominster and Bromyard where the limit will now cover from Steen Bridge to the Drum Crossroads.

The Council said that the current 60mph speed limit “is not appropriate due to the poor visibility when pulling onto the A44 from the side roads”, a sentiment that was echoed by both the councillor of the local ward as well as the parish council.

The extension from consultation to installation will cost £15,000 and saw no objections.

There will be other speed limit changes throughout the county, with the 30mph on Ridgeway Road in Sutton St. Nicholas being extended which will apply to the northern, eastern, and southern approaches to the village, as well as a 40mph speed limit being introduced on roads in the hamlet of Moccas.

Some candidates for changes in speeds and parking have been dropped however, with proposed speed cuts in Roman Road, Canon Pyon Road and Cleeve Orchard, all near Hereford, being dropped.
