Hereford is a Primary Destination and city in Herefordshire. It is notorious for being one of the cities in the UK without an official bypass, however there are two unofficial ones on the northern and eastern sides. The lack of a proper bypass and the A49, A438 and A465 all meeting near the city centre results in considerable traffic jams, both in and out of rush hour.
On 18th December 2017 the City Link Road opened. This road runs from the A49 on Edgar Street to the bottom of Aylestone Hill by the railway station and has been classified as the A465. Commercial Road was renumbered to A4193 at the same time.
A Southern Link Road between the A49/B4399 roundabout and the A465/B4349 junction is also being planned. Its number hasn't been confirmed yet but it looks likely that it will be an extension of the B4399.
Several routes radiate from Hereford.
