Eastern Approaches Gateway to receive improvements


16 September 2016


This September and October will see the Vale of Glamorgan Council undertake environmental improvement work to the land at the junction of Cardiff Road (A4055) and Sully Moors Road (B267).

Cardiff Road, and this junction in particular, are an important gateway into Barry; its regeneration will improve the attractiveness of the area, thereby improving visitors’ impressions of Barry and the wider county.

The works at the gateway include the planting of wildflowers, spring and summer flowering bulbs, and distinctive ornamental trees. Work on existing trees in the area will see the canopy of the trees raised.


The area of work includes the main roundabout, the central reservation and grass verges. In order to ensure safety, traffic management measures will be in place throughout the day (when necessary), but no road closures will take place. The works are expected to take 6 weeks to complete.

Councillor Lis Burnett, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Education, said: “This summer we have taken significant steps forward, in terms of regeneration in the Vale. The regeneration of Barry Island has continued, with the opening of the new causeway footpath and cycleway, and the new Barry Waterfront link road entering its final stages in its construction. The work underway at the junction of Cardiff road and Sully Moors Road further represents our commitment to improving the environment and increasing the lure of the Vale of Glamorgan.”
