With all the talk about the new Hereford Enterprise Zone at Rotherwas in Hereford, I was reminded this morning about the Rotherwas Relief Road.
Clearly without the Relief Road, the Hereford Enterprise Zone would have been a very different proposition. It’s worthwhile making clear at this point the huge amount of work put in by businesses such as Ken Davies at KGD, Chris Brookes at LUK, HFT, Arctic Circle and many others. At that time the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce put considerable time and effort into supporting the vision for the road that many had termed “the road to nowhere”.
I’m pleased that our Chamber representated its members strong views on this subject so well and helped to bring about delivery of the road. For all those involved in projects now, it’s great to see our Chamber with more skill, more strength and more commited members than ever before.
