Stephanie Wilkins started this petition to Cardiff Council and

Following an accident between a cyclist and elderly pedestrian in Hailey Park (2019), in 2020 Cardiff Council held a consultation to upgrade the Taff trail through Hailey park.

The Taff trail is to be diverted from its current route, to run past the children's playground. The plans can be viewed here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=299941301481878&id=103131491162861

Residents and cyclists have safety concerns: that the scheme brings children and cyclists into conflict and changes the nature of the amenity for users. Children want to be able to run free when entering and exiting their playground, not dodge cyclists. We feel if these plans go ahead it is just an accident waiting to happen. In addition, dog owners often congregate along the railings while thier children play, and park users picnic on the grassy area outside, and the proposed scheme will adversely affect this. 

We feel that the concerns expressed by residents and cyclists during the consultation have been ignored, and oppose the plans.

WE CALL ON CARDIFF COUNCIL TO REVISE ITS PLANS FOR THE SITE AND WORK EITH RESIDENTS YO DEVELOP AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE.
