Organisation calls for warning signs on north Wales road

4th February 2010 | Warning Signs

A local organisation in Wales is calling on the Welsh Assembly to install warning signs at a well-used road crossing.

Llanwnda Community Council wants to see safety signs warning drivers of crossing pedestrians on a stretch of the A487 Caernarfon to Porthmadog bypass, the Caernarfon Herald reported.

Bethan Williams, the council's clerk, told the newspaper that she has sent a number of requests to Gwynedd Council, which is funded by the national assembly, and the Highways Agency to have signs erected.

"Public footpaths cross the road and they are used on a regular basis, however there are no signs warning drivers of the existence of these paths," she said.

Ms Williams questioned the assembly's decision to install a bridge for bats over the same part of the road and argued that the safety of the creatures is being prioritised over people.

Another road in north Wales with safety concerns, the A470 between Mallwyd and Dolgellau, was recently opened following a landslip.
