He claims that when the £57,000,000 Eastern Bay Link Road, between Rover Way and the Butetown Tunnel completes the A4232 peripheral road around Cardiff , the A4055 through Dinas will become “a grid-locked nightmare like a Welsh M25,” .
Cllr Driscoll says “The chance of a serious accident happening – particularly near the Infant School at the traffic lights – doesn’t bear thinking about” and wants heavy vehicles banned from using the route through Dinas.
Local Conservative councillors are writing to the Vale Council and to Jane Hutt A.M. for the Vale to ask her to raise the matter with the Welsh Government’s cabinet secretary for economy and infrastructure, Ken Skates.
The Labour-controlled Vale of Glamorgan Council omitted to include a Dinas Powys By-Pass in its 10-year transport plan claiming the emphasis should be on ‘walking and cycling routes.’
Until the by-pass is actually is built the Conservatives say a weight restriction is essential.
