Dyfed-Powys Police To Launch All Wales Fatal 5 Campaign

On Tuesday 19 January 2021, Police and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed Powys, Dafydd Llywelyn, will hold a virtual community engagement day, specifically focusing on road safety and the launch of an All Wales Fatal 5 campaign.

Dyfed-Powys Police will lead on the campaign, which focuses on five significant factors in fatal and serious injury collisions: drink/drug driving; speed; not wearing a seatbelt; using a mobile phone; and careless driving.

The campaign will be launched by Dafydd Llywelyn, during his first Commissioner in Conversation live Facebook broadcast of the year. He will be joined by ACC Mark Travis from South Wales Police - Strategic Lead for Roads Policing in Wales, and Teresa Ciano - GoSafe Partnership Manager.

Essential Journeys Only!

Road Safety Wales is asking everyone in Wales to consider if the journeys they are making are absolutely essential.

Along with other key workers, our emergency services and NHS colleagues have worked tirelessly over the past year doing everything possible to keep us safe – putting themselves in danger, sometimes with the worst outcome imaginable for them and their families.  If you are starting to feel really fed up and worn out due to the pandemic, please spare a thought for how these people must be feeling.

If just one person decides to make a non-essential journey and is unfortunate to be involved in a collision, the added pressure this puts on our emergency responders and hospitals can be huge.

Have Your Say On Active Travel In Rhondda Cynon Taf

Residents can now have their say on the current walking and cycling routes in Rhondda Cynon Taf, as well as their aspirations for future improvements, by taking part in the Council’s latest Active Travel consultation.

In October 2020, Cabinet agreed for the Council to undertake a further extensive public engagement exercise into its future Active Travel plans – as Members acknowledged the economic, health and environmental benefits of residents walking and cycling more often, as part of their daily routines.

The consultation will help the Council update its Integrated Network Map, which sets out the aspirations for investment in Active Travel over the next 15 years – for submission to Welsh Government during December 2021.

Active Travel Improvements For Newtown

Works to extend the shared path on Llanidloes Road in Newtown to the college and theatre are due to begin shortly.

Funded by the Welsh Government, the improvements will complete the main Active Travel routes within the town, previously identified in consultations with residents, businesses and local communities. These Active Travel routes in Newtown will provide a safer network of routes for all users.

As part of the planned improvements, the path under Nantoer Bridge will be widened, significantly reducing the safely risk for pedestrians and cyclists, particularly young people travelling to and from the college.

Road Safety Wales Awards

The Road Safety Wales Awards recognise individuals, groups and organisations that have made a real commitment to road safety, above and beyond what would normally be expected of them.

We would traditionally invite our winners to the annual Road Safety Wales Conference to collect their award but unfortunately we have been unable to host an event this year.

Chair of Road Safety Wales, Teresa Ciano said, "Despite a difficult year for everyone, Road Safety Wales is delighted to be able to recognise so many deserving people who have made a significant difference to the lives of those in their community.
