The 20 mph zone has finally been put in place around Bryn Deri Primary. There are signs at both ends of Caer Craig and 20mph markers on lamp posts. Let’s hope both local residents and visitors respect the new limits to keep our children safe and that police monitor the zone once children are back in school.August 25, 2018 at 10:00 pm #7899

The hand brake is off and now we must get into first gear to gain the road safety improvements our vulnerable residents deserve.
There is a lot more work to be done by residents and Councillors to secure speed reduction and demand restraint throughout the roads of Morganstown and Radyr.
When we, ultimately, slide into fifth gear, we will see a safer, healthier, cleaner and, indeed, happier Village.September 3, 2018 at 4:12 pm #7935
Its all gone quite on this front ?
Well thats two of the schools with 20mph zones in place, just Radyr Comp, Heol Isaf and Main Road to sort out.
I should praise the council for getting this done, but in fact, and I don’t want to sound bitter, I am a bit embarrassed for them that it has taken so long. The grass in my garden grows quicker than the council can make a decision !September 4, 2018 at 4:53 pm #7937
The case for demand restraint and road safety …
for all residents and road users in Morganstown and Radyr has now been all but won
… in civil society and both Local Authorities.
The only remaining question is that of the political will to get it done.November 26, 2018 at 4:48 pm #8231
Here is a link to Radyr and Morganstown Community Council’s response to Cardiff Council’s draft scheme layout for highway improvements:
In summary, the response states that Radyr and Morganstown Community Council:
welcomes the proposed works
wants to work with Cardiff Council to agree a comprehensive scheme that will make our community a better and safer place to live.
wants to agree with Cardiff Council a timetable for delivery of the scheme within as short a time as possible.
believes strongly that providing a limited number of improvements, making some parts of the road safe whilst leaving other parts in a dangerous condition, should not be thought of as ‘enough for now’.
believes that the work should begin with new tabled zebra crossings at Morganstown, Min-y-Coed and Radyr Health Center – along with additional provision by Radyr Comprehensive School.
agrees that existing zebra crossings should be tabled
wants to work with Cardiff Council to ensure successful delivery of a 20mph zone, as an integral part of the scheme
would like to see all crossings catering for cyclists, if possible.
agrees that the crossing near Station Road should be upgraded to a tabled Puffin Crossing
would support the introduction of a 20mph limit, based on best practice
requests a tabled Pegasus Crossing near Radyr Farm Lane, to enable pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders to cross safely
requests that thought be given to providing safe passage for motorists living east and west of Heol Isaf and Ty Nant Road, as they seek to turn left and right onto those roads
believes that a safe-cycling strategy should be developed for Radyr and Morganstown
requests that the risks associated with the junction of De Clare Drive with King’s Road should be addressed,
requests that a pavement should be installed along the short length of Windsor Road which does not have one at present
requests that various options should be considered with regard to the future use of Golf Club lane
asks that signs be erected to discourage fly tipping on Golf Club Lane.
supports changing train ticket pricing to remove the incentive to catch trains fom Radyr rather than Taffs Well
requests that the safety of pedestrians crossing the lower end of Drysgol Road should be considered
requests that Cardiff Council considers measures to ensure that the propsed works do not result in drivers using other routes through Radyr and Morganstown, thus transferring risk to other sections of road.
The response has been sent to Councillor Caro Wild (Cardiff Council’s Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning & Transport); Paul Carter (Head of Transport at Cardiff Council); Mark Drakeford AM; Kevin Brennan MP and the Welsh Government.
Cllr Huw Onllwyn Jones
