Penarth Conservative Assembly Member Andrew R T Davies is writing to South Wales Police and to the Vale of Glamorgan Council asking them to consider “all measures” to improve safety on Sully Road .
Mr Davies – who’s the leader of the Conservatives in Welsh Assembly – yesterday visited the accident site with Conservative colleagues Chris Thorne and Rod Thomas to see the road for himself.
The move follows Friday’s accident in which a car overturned on Sully Road – a route – which is being used by an increasing volume of traffic but is actually little more than a winding, narrow, country lane with a succession of hazardous blind bends.
The lane, which connects Sully to the Merrie Harrier junction in Penarth and is used by many parents on the school run.
Andrew R T Davies said he and his colleagues had been “inundated with comments from people in the area” all of whom had expressed concern over Sully Road. He said “At present there are clearly some significant issues and it is in everyone’s interests to act swiftly to ensure no one ends up being seriously hurt.”
One constituent – Stephen Katchi – has set up a petition for the local community to sign and express their concern – https://www.change.org/p/vale-of-glamorgan-council-make-sully-road-lane-safer-prevent-more-accidents/share?after_sign_exp=default&just_signed=true
Andrew RT Davies AM and local Conservatives – Chris Thorne and Rod Thomas – have called on the Vale of Glamorgan Council to take urgent action on Sully Road after a recent spate of accidents.
He said “The recent spate of accidents on Sully Road is a serious concern for the local community and with traffic only set to increase it is vital the Vale of Glamorgan Council takes urgent action to improve the safety of the road. Sully’s strong community spirit has always been evident and this latest petition is once again a sign of residents taking issues into their own hands and demanding action – but it is important the council listens and makes some substantial safety improvements. “It is not just one incident and it is clear that the road is becoming an accident hotspot. The Vale Council must explore all measures available to it to ensure the road is made safe again.”
Chris Thorne and Rod Thomas of Sully Conservatives, said: “Reports of accidents on Sully Road are increasing tenfold of late and it is incumbent on the Vale Council to protect local residents and road users. All measures should be explored including lowering the speed limit and the addition of traffic calming measures before it is too late and someone pays the ultimate price.”
