Cllr Fenella Bowden & the Independent team are pleased that the 20mph zone has finally been installed Birchgrove Road – almost 12 months after being approved.
Fenella said ‘We have been campaigning for this scheme for years & the Council has continuously refused to support one. In November 2016, I was told by the Cabinet Member for Highways that the road did not justify a scheme. But whatever the motive behind the change of heart, I am delighted that children will gain more safeguarding in this busy road. The scheme is not as all-encompassing as that which was installed for Ton yr Ywen School, but it is a start. Now we need to see how effective the scheme is.’
The HBI team has campaigned hard to make the Birchgrove area safe.
