“The route will cross Queen’s Road near its junction with Balfour Road and Romania Drive, where a controlled passage provision will be provided.

“We are currently finalizing the designs and will be conducting a stakeholder engagement exercise in the coming months, where we hope to be able to attract additional funding from the Welsh Government to build the program by the end of this exercise.

“As for the traffic problems caused by careless parking near the new traffic island, our intention is to introduce double yellow lines to protect traffic.

“However, given the legal procedures we have to follow, these will take time to process. We will therefore put in place temporary measures to try to calm the situation.

“As an immediate action, we have placed traffic cones to protect the flow of traffic, which will be followed by the placement of double yellow lines on a temporary traffic control order, which we will then make permanent.”
