Mike Hedges AM welcomes new investment to improve roads and road safety in areas close to Swansea East Schools
£420,000 has been awarded to Swansea Council by Welsh Government to improve road safety measures around schools and progress Swansea Urban Connections City centre schemes. Of this £110,300 has been allocated to roads and Schools in Swansea East.
Mike Hedges said…. ‘ this is great news for road safety in areas of Swansea East; this investment will give added incentive to walking and cycling to school which will improve children’s health, while reducing the amount of traffic congestion in the vicinity of these schools I look forward to visiting these schemes to see their impacts.
The schemes will accelerate delivery of a range of active travel improvements linked to Welsh Government transport priorities in and support of the landmark Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013.
