Closed petition Welsh Government 'Freeze on road building" to include a clause for cases that pose a danger to life

The recent fire at Tylorstown Working Mens’ Club proved that the infrastructure in the Rhondda Fach needs urgent updating. With the main road blocked for several days, all traffic was diverted through side streets causing blockages and congestion. Schools had to be shut, public transport halted, school transport cancelled, people were unable to get to work and there was no accessible route for emergency vehicles.

More details

The relief road from Tylorstown to Maerdy has been in the Local Authority's Local Development Plan for years, it’s time the people of the Fach see some swift action. This can't happen with the Welsh Government’s "freeze" on new roads as stands.
