Council to install traffic lights at junction of A48 and Five Mile Lane

In April 2012, a grant was provided by WG to complete the design of the scheme, procure the works and complete the construction within the financial year 2012/13.


In June 2012, WG confirmed that the traffic signal option should be progressed to detail design. 


The proposal at Sycamore Cross is to provide a fully signalised junction to better manage the traffic manoeuvres and flows and to improve safety.  In addition, dedicated off-road cycle lanes will provide safer routes for cyclists through the junction.

The Council and Welsh Government have ignored the facts that suggest that similar junctions in the Vale have a poor safety record - and the conversion of the roundabout at Barons Court in Penarth to a crossroads with traffic lights has resulted in a significant increase in serious accidents.
