Residents demand action on speeding in St Brides

St Brides Major residents turned out in force last week to demand action to tackle speeding in the village.


At a public meeting in the village on Friday 31st March, local people were addressed by South Wales Central AM and Leader of the Welsh Conservatives Andrew RT Davies, who discussed their concerns.


Among the measures requested include 20mph speed limits, and more pedestrian crossings in the village.


The problem is compounded by congestion in the village, as well as the number of heavy goods vehicles passing through.


Mr Davies has said that action must be taken before an accident occurs, and has written to the Vale Council asking them to improve the situation.


Mr Davies said, “St Brides residents are rightly concerned by the speeds some vehicles travel at when passing through the village.


“As well as being frustrating for local residents, there are also safety issues that must be addressed.


“Many people have demanded 20mph speed limits and more pedestrian crossings, and it was good to have the chance to speak to so many residents on this.


“I’d be keen to know your views so please do get in touch and I’ll take your comments into account.


“I have written to the Vale Council and I hope they will take action to address the situation.”
