Rhoose councillor and South Wales Central MS Andrew RT Davies has backed residents’ calls for road safety improvements at East Aberthaw.
Last week, Mr Davies arranged for Vale of Glamorgan Highways Operational Manager Mike Clogg to visit the village, and meet with members of the East Aberthaw Road Safety Campaign to discuss their concerns.
They undertook a walkabout, where a number of issues were pointed out, including a lack of dropped kerbs, safe crossing points and suitable pavements, particularly around Station Terrace.
Concerns were also raised about dangers on the road between East Aberthaw and the village of Rhoose.
Mr Davies said the issues presented considerable safety hazards for pedestrians, and he has asked the Council to bring forward measures to address them.
Mr Davies said, “There are several hazards for pedestrians in East Aberthaw and it is vital these are addressed.
“It’s all very good talking about active travel, but it’s only practical if measures are in place to enable people to do so safely.
“I’m grateful to Mike for coming out and meeting with residents, and I am pressing the Council for action on the concerns raised.”
