Trinity Street one-way system to be removed next month


Published 21 December 2015


The experimental one-way system that was trialled on Trinity Street and surrounding roads in Barry earlier this year is to be removed in January.


The Vale of Glamorgan Council had trialled new traffic management arrangements in response to concerns raised by residents of Trinity Street about the speed of vehicles, volume of traffic, and road safety.

The trial saw a split one-way system implemented, with traffic channelled one-way north from Montgomery Road to Jenner Road and one-way south from Montgomery Road to High Street.  However, following a public consultation which saw the majority of local residents oppose the scheme, a decision was taken not to implement the measures on a permanent basis.

Work will now begin in early January to remove the temporary road signs, road markings and other traffic management measures and reinstate the originals. This is expected to take around two weeks to complete.

The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s highways engineers will then meet with local councillors to begin to consider any alternative solutions.

Local residents will be kept fully informed of any developments.
