Concern over safety of crossing in Cardiff

Residents of a street in Cardiff are raising concern over a pedestrian crossing in the Llandaff area of Cardiff after a fourth crash reported at the site in eighteen months.

The South Wales Argus reports that police said they were called shortly before 4.20am on Wednesday (14 February), to a crash on Western Avenue.

They say it’s the fourth crash that has taken place at the Western Avenue crossing between Insole Grove East and Insole Place since June 2022.

Conservative Cardiff Council ward member for Llandaff, Cllr Sean Driscoll, told the paper older residents and parents of children were “losing confidence” in the crossing.

Cardiff Council said there was good street lighting on the road, with signals in operation and appropriate road markings and signage.

A council spokesperson said: “The speed limit has been reduced from 40mph to 30mph, and in line with procedure, we review police incident reports following a road traffic collision to assess any contributing factors, along with reviewing if there are any other measures that may be needed to improve safety.”
