20 mph zone coming to Birchgrove Road!

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.
