This petition was submitted by Antony Foulkes, having collected 52 signatures online.
We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to introduce effective traffic speed-calming measures along the A487 Trunk Road which flows directly through the middle of the neighbouring villages of Tre-Taliesin and Tre-r-ddol, and to consult and seek the views of local residents living in these villages.
The A487 is the major
North to South Wales Trunk road running along the breadth of the
West Wales Coast. This Trunk Road carries high and increasing
volume of speeding vehicles and heavy goods traffic into and
through the narrow middle of the Ceredigion villages of
Tre-Taliesin and Tre-r-ddol. In late 2016, villagers formed the
A487 Taliesin Action Group. This local action group has met and
communicated closely with the LLangynfelyn Community Council, Dyfed
Powys Police, Ceredigion County Council and the local Member of
Parliament to undertake an analysis of the issues and potential
solutions. The group have also raised their concerns and offered to
meet and share their views with the North West Wales Trunk Road
Agency, but this invitation has not been accepted to date.
It important that villagers who live day to day with the speeding traffic are listened to and their views fully taken into account by the Welsh Government, in order for effective speed calming measures which safeguards the villagers and road users, to be planned and implemented.
This petition has closed for signatures and is currently awaiting it’s first consideration by the Petitions Committee.
