Help have a mini roundabout put in place on the cross roads in BONYMAEN.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The road layout on the cross roads where Bonymaen rd, Mansel rd, Llanerch rd and Tydraw rd meet is very dangerous. There have been numerous accidents and 100's if not 1000's of unreported near misses. It has a 'stop and give way' on 3 sides and a 'right of way' on one. We had a very serious collision a month or so ago and another yesterday and many more since the layout has been put in place. We need something done before someone is killed! It has been passed onto the relevant people in the council who have put it on their list to be reviewed but that could take a long time. Please share and sign this especially if you live in the area. Personally i think a mini roundabout would be best but anything is better that whats there now. 

This is the reply my local councillor receieved when he requested something be done.


"Dear Councillor Lloyd,

Thank you for your email.

We can look at options however not sure if a mini roundabout would be suitable without a detailed look at the site. Mini-roundabouts tend to work more effectively when there are three approaches to the roundabout rather than four which would be the case at this junction.

Cost would need to include for electrical connections to signing that would be required on all approaches, so overall cost of scheme could be significant if extensive trenching work is required. Re-alignment of kerbs may also be required.

We will add to list of works for consideration and get options to you in due course."

So it seems like as usual it could all come down to cost but if it saves lives then isnt ot worth it at any cost?

Thank you for your support.
