The Conservative leader in the Welsh Assembly Andrew R T Davies – who’s been pressing the Welsh Government for an update on its response to Dinas Powys villager’s demands for a by-pass – has now received an encouraging update on the potential project.
In a written response to Mr Davies, the Welsh Government’s Infrastructure Minister Ken Skates has now confirmed that the Welsh Government is awaiting the outcome of a stage one report into the transport issues in Dinas Powys and that the next phase would be commissioned to provide details on costs – before recommending a preferred solution.
Andrew R T Davies – who represents South Wales Central – has been leading the campaign for a by-pass and attended the packed public meeting in Dinas Powys at which there was a unamumous vote in favour of the by-pass scheme .
Mr Davies said, “Dinas Powys residents have been promised a by-pass for over 5 decades, and I’m pleased that the campaign is finally gaining serious traction. The progress that has been made is to be welcomed, and I look forward to the publication of this latest report.”
The by-pass scheme could have major implications for Penarth. Andrew R T Davies said today “I will continue to work alongside local residents to deliver a by-pass and secure a solution to the significant bottleneck in Dinas Powys – which has implications for all travelling between Cardiff and Barry.”
