Bank Holiday travel advice for Barry Island visitors


03 April 2017


BARRY Island visitors are being asked to plan ahead as the resort gears up for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend - the first in which the new Waterfront Link Road will be open.


Life Guards are now back on duty and big crowds are expected over the four days, beginning a week on Friday, at the start of the summer season.


Barry Island promenadeIn order to ensure as smooth a trip as possible, visitors should be aware of certain traffic arrangements that will be in place over the Bank Holiday.


The Waterfront Consortium and Persimmon homes will not complete the work being carried out on the Cosy Corner junction until next month so a temporary cone arrangement will remain in place.


Those approaching from the west should take the traditional route over the causeway to Nell’s Point car park. Motorists coming from the east are advised to travel on the new link road, avoiding the Cosy Corner junction, to Harbour Road car park. There will be signs to guide them along the way.


In the event of an exceptionally high volume of traffic, Council officers will be present to direct vehicles.


Visitors are reminded they must adhere to the Council’s “Park Tidy!” campaign, which aims to avoid illegal and irresponsible


parking that can be dangerous and a source of frustration to residents and businesses.

Here is a link to those guidelines:
