A campaign to get a crossing point built on Caerleon Road close to the junction with Beaufort Road has been rejected by Newport Council.
Local residents for some time have voiced concerns that there is no safe crossing point along this part of Caerleon Road. The Council in their reply have said a lack of money and physical site constraints mean a crossing cannot be provided.
Newport East Welsh Liberal Assembly candidate Paul Halliday said:
“While we accept that the location presents a number of constraints, we remain to be convinced that all options have yet been fully explored. This is a busy stretch of road and the lack of a crossing point provides a daily barrier for residents accessing bus stops, local shops and services.”
“We hope it doesn’t take an accident for the Council to think again.”
