Help Merthyr Tydfil CBC to Make Streets Safer
Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council is seeking the views of residents who walk and cycle in and around the town centre.
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen exceptional numbers of local residents out walking and cycling - either for leisure or to travel to shops and jobs.
The Welsh Government has developed a COVID-19 Sustainable Transport Fund to help councils ensure that effective social distancing measures are in place, especially in town centres. As a result, the Council has received £414,000 to investigate opportunities to enhance the pedestrian and cycling environment in the town centre and adjacent areas.
This could include trying out new pedestrian crossings, reducing vehicle carriageway space and restricting vehicle access to the main pedestrian areas.
To get your opinions, the Council has been working with walking and cycling charity Sustrans Cymru on an online questionnaire asking for views on five town centre locations, roads and junctions.
They are the Caedraw and Tesco roundabouts, Court Street, Victoria Street and High Street. The survey asks questions such as how safe people feel crossing the roads and if they would feel safer with reduced traffic at these locations.
