MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has been pressing for urgent action to be taken to improve road safety on the A465 at Llanvihangel Crucorney for some time following a site meeting with local residents earlier this year..
Monmouthshire County Council has now accepted that relocation of the two village signs in the northbound direction has some merit. The repositioning of these signs is being considered for possible inclusion in next year’s highways programme.
Speaking today Nick said:
“A number of constituents have contacted me about road safety concerns on the A465 around Llanvihangel Crucorney. Moving the village name signs will help improve road safety in the area and I hope this will be carried out as soon as possible.
“Responsibility for the A465 trunk road lies with the Welsh Government, and despite writing to the Minister twice in recent months to call for further urgent improvement to the road signage I have been informed it is very unlikely that improvements will be carried out for some years.
“I’m very disappointed that this stretch of the A465 is not being regarded as a priority, but I will continue to monitor the situation and press the Minister for action sooner rather than later.”
