Swansea Council are pursuing plans to reduce the width of the road on Pentre Road Bridge (main road between Gorseinon & Pontarddulais) to single lane traffic only, in order to make way for a walking and cycle route. While additional walking and cycle routes are strongly welcomed, they must be implemented with a common sense approach.
These proposals will cause a traffic and congestion nightmare for local residents. Tailbacks will also have a damaging environmental impact.
Please sign the petition to put pressure on Swansea Council to rethink their plans and conduct a full public consultation before any changes are made.
An alternative is to install a separate bridge running alongside the existing bridge. This would allow for a walkway and cycle route, which would solve the problems with the current proposal.
