Rejected petition More zebra and pelican crossings on Beechley Drive and Gorse Place in Pentrebane.

There are three Primary Schools on Beechley Drive and only one zebra crossing. There are no crossings on Gorse Place. As a result, lots of children attempt to cross the road elsewhere. This is extremely dangerous as it is the main road through Pentrebane. There have been a number of accidents over the years. Creating more safe crossings will help to protect the children and people of Pentrebane.

More details

We often take the children to the local library in Fairwater, and it is extremely difficult to cross the road safely, especially on Gorse Place. Children also play out in the evenings and it is not safe for them even to get to the local park.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Roads, other than trunk roads, are the responsibility of local councils.

Petitions to the Senedd cannot concern an issue that is the operational responsibility of a local authority and, therefore, we are not able to accept a petition on this issue.

Cardiff Council has its own petitions process. You can find out more at the link below.

Or you could consider contacting your local representatives about this matter instead.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
