An apartment courtyard near Baron’s Court at was used as a compound for the emergency vehicles dealing with this morning’s collision

There was a full turn out of emergency vehicles to the Baron’s Court junction – the “Gateway to Penarth” this morning after two vehicles were involved in a collision  at the link-road junction

The courtyard of an adjacent apartment block became a veritable police compound as a road policing unit from Barry was joined by an NHS ambulance and a paramedic car.

Despite the damage to the cars involved – one of which was a white Renault diesel saloon –  police said there were only “minor injuries” to the occupants . The Renault had received a hefty swipe to its left hand side which rendered it undriveable.

  1. Ian Perry says:

    Cllr Lis Burnett insists that this junction is safer than the roundabout that proceeded it, despite police statistics showing otherwise.

    If we were to look at the findings of research into making our roads and streets as safe as possible, and implement the recommendations, our roads and streets would not be as they are today – and we’d probably have less congestion/fewer delays too.

    I think it is overdue for the re-painting of the white lines, and some better signage from the Penarth direction.

    Although I’m sure the people who find themselves in the wrong lane are following PratNav instead of looking at the signage.

    Can it be remarked and relined please.
