New Crossing for Llantwit Major
Work is underway by the Vale of Glamorgan Council to install a new pedestrian crossing on Llanmaes Road, in Llantwit Major.
The new crossing which will be controlled by light signals is being installed to create a safer route for pupils walking to the new Llantwit Learning Community and nearby playing fields.
