Merthyr Tydfil CBC Consulting on Road Safety Plans for Schools
The Council is consulting residents about plans to make changes on the highway at two primary schools, due to road safety concerns.
Residents of Caedraw Road outside St Mary’s Catholic and Caedraw Primary schools have received letters asking them to take part in a survey, on proposals to create a better highway environment.
Concerns have been raised about road safety at the location due to the number of cars parking on pavements on a road that has 'access only' restrictions.
The plans include providing an ‘on road’ cycle lane, prohibition of waiting, loading and unloading at any time, and the addition of ‘school keep clear’ notices, as well as maintaining the existing parking for taxis.
A grant for the work has been received from the Welsh Government Active Travel Fund, with the aim of improving the facilities for pedestrians and cyclists and improving the environment for residents.
Comments on the proposals can be sent to: email@example.com by Sunday 1 August 2022.
