Traffic restrictions during NATO Summit

Disruption possible on 04 and 05 September 2014



The Vale of Glamorgan Council will be implementing temporary traffic restrictions to ensure the free flow of traffic and to manage any inappropriate parking close to Cardiff Airport during the NATO summit in September.


The temporary legal order will be in place between 12:00 Tuesday 02 September and 23.59 Friday 05 September 2014.


The order will prohibit waiting on Rhoose Road between the roundabout with Porthkerry Road and the road’s end. The road will remain open. However, a temporary legal order will be in place to enable the police to close the road if required. Waiting will also be prohibited on the unnamed roads that lead from Porthkerry Road to Porthkerry village.

Residents on the roads affected will be receiving letters from the Council giving them further details of the restrictions.


Operational Manager for Highways and Engineering, Michael Clogg, said: “Access and parking for residents and businesses along Rhoose Road will be maintained at all times and every effort will be made to minimise any disruption. Temporary parking permits will be issued to all residents and businesses who are registered keepers of vehicles along Rhoose Road before  02 September.”


The Vale of Glamorgan Council will be providing a private parking area at the Porthkerry Caravan site for any aviation enthusiasts who will be coming to Cardiff Airport during the NATO Summit.


A number of footpaths in Penmark will also be closed between 03 September and 05 September: Footpath no’s 9, 9A, 10, 15, 20 along with the restricted by- way known as Penmark no 18.
