Trial 20mph zone for Llandough to be introduced

 

Published 23 July 2015

 

Following a consultation and requests from residents and community groups, a 20mph speed limit is set to be introduced along Penlan Road in Llandough as a trial.

 

The trial scheme will be closely monitored for the first 6 months, during which time residents will have the opportunity to have their say as to whether the trial should be made permanent or not.

 

20mph sign on roadA public consultation on the potential for 20mph zones within the Penarth and Llandough areas took place during March and April 2013, with the results suggesting there was a slight majority in support for further investigation of a 20mph speed limit.

 

Works will start during the week commencing 27 July and will take around one week to complete, allowing the trial speed limit to become operational from 3 August.

 

The trial will simply involve appropriate signs and markings being installed, as opposed to traffic calming measures such as humps or tabled junctions. If the trial proves successful then further investment could be made available for a more permanent scheme.

 

Llandough ward Councillor Kate Edmunds said: “I have made improving road safety in Llandough a priority and have lobbied for action to be taken in this area. I am very happy that this invaluable evidence gathering exercise is being undertaken.

 

“The speed of traffic in Llandough has long been a major concern of residents and I would urge as many of them as possible to feed their comments back to the Council on this initiative.”
