The Vale of Glamorgan Council is to install bike-parking stands and pedestrian crossing points with “tactile” dropped kerbs at Station Approach.
The new bike stands and crossings will be installed at the junction of Victoria Road with Station Approach . The crossing points will not be formal zebra crossings.
Construction work is scheduled to begin on during the week commencing Monday July 27th and the project will take about 2 weeks to complete. Access to some pavements and crossing points will be out of bounds to the public whilst the work is under way .
In August last year a report by Penarth Town Council’s “Interim Momentum Group” had reviewed bike parking facilities in the town and had recommended that the “D shaped” traffic island over the road from Foxy’s Cafe & Deli should have 5 bike racks installed on it in a fan configuration to “pleasantly reflect” the curve of the adjacent Royal Buildings .
It’s not yet known whether the Vale Council will follow the layout proposed by the Penarth Momentum Group
