Vale of Glamorgan Road Infrastructure Developments

Posted on October 20, 2009 at 10:30 0 Comments

During the summer, I wrote to the Vale of Glamorgan with regard to some road infrastructure changes in the South Wales towns of Penarth and Cowbridge. The questions and answers follow:



What are the traffic flows on Windsor road and why is the road, particularly in the town centre not deemed suitable for “shared space”, when Bristol City Council are planning to follow Ashford and turn Park Street over to “shared space”?

All Local Authorities in Wales have failed to respond to the offer of training or more information on the Manual for Streets according to one of its authors.
