    Ty Nant Road / Heol Isaf 1945

    The Radyr and Morganstown Community Council unanimously agreed to my proposal to set up a Road Safety Advisory Committee.

    The Subcommittee, its terms of reference, work tasks and membership are being formed and it will meet early in September.

    The Committee will be looking to work together with all stakeholders to improve road safety throughout Radyr and Morganstown.

    The Committee will be inviting members of the public as members and contributors, so watch for an announcement.

    In the meantime, I include a short post by one of the Residents’ Road Safety Steering Group, which suggests a historical reason for the current problems.

    “The root cause of our road safety issues is that the road is physically too narrow for what it’s being asked to do.

    This photo is the B4262 in 1945. Greater than 60% of it’s length, is flanked on one or both sides by open countryside. So in other words, it is / was a country B road.

    The houses have not got any further apart, but now with the expansion of Cardiff and the addition of the M4 & A470, it’s being swamped with unmanaged quantities, speeds and unsuitable types of traffic.”



    Any dates set up for this yet please?


    Not as yet.

    The Council agreed to my proposal in July.

    There is a meeting in September, so I will be able to feed back, very soon.




    Thank you for this, Kieran. I’m pleased that you agreed with my suggestion that the council should establish a working group to consider road safety. I was also pleased to help you by drafting the terms of reference for the group, which we then discussed and developed.

    Councillor Huw Onllwyn Jones


    Hi Huw, yes, definitely. It is always a pleasure working with you and I have appreciated and value your work in this area and your advice, also. Cheers, Kieran
