In the six weeks since the completion of changes to the junction of the A494/A470 at Dolgellau there have been three serious road traffic collisions, two fatalities, two seriously injured and two ˜minor injuries”. Many people have expressed concerns locally and with the coming summer holidays and an increase to the traffic at this junction there are likely to be more such incidents. We call on the Welsh Government to consider, urgently, changes to this junction before more lives are lost or changed for the worse.
This junction has always caused concern but in the six weeks of the changes people are very wary of using it and ’locals’ change their routes to avoid it when possible. The deaths and injuries are a needless waste of life and lives will be saved if a clearer system is in place, maybe a small roundabout or at least, in the short term, additional signage.
