Mike Hedges AM welcomes new funding for road safety improvements close to Swansea East Schools

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.
