AM demands action as Rover Way 'obstruction' causes chaos for commuters

South Wales Central AM, Andrew RT Davies, has called for urgent action as an ‘obstruction’ on Rover Way in Cardiff has caused chaos for commuters.

The road has been closed since Wednesday evening and has caused gridlock in the area with some drivers reporting journey times of two hours plus to get to Cardiff Bay.

According to eye-witness reports, the ‘obstruction’ has been caused by the local gypsy and travelling community parking their cards in the middle of the road.  

Mr Davies has called on South Wales Police and Cardiff Council to take ‘urgent action’.

He said:

“This obstruction is causing complete chaos for commuters this morning and needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

“This unacceptable behaviour is bringing the roads in our city to a grinding halt and it’s disgraceful that law-abiding citizens are expected to have to endure severe disruption for what could go on for as long as 24 hours.   

“If I were to cause a similar obstruction on the A48 with a tractor or two, they’d be towed away within hours.

“We need to see urgent action from South Wales Police and Cardiff Council - no leeway or excuses should be applied here.”
