MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has welcomed news that Monmouthshire County Council are considering extending the 30mph speed limit on Station Road, Raglan, and also what other action might be undertaken to improve pedestrian safety, particularly between Puddleducks Nursery and Raglan School.
Speaking on Monday, Mr Ramsay said:
“Because there is no pavement along Station Road, parents are understandably concerned about the safety issue for both the school and the nursery. I understand that a proposal for a designated walkway down Station Road may be considered and hopefully the council will also decide to extend the 30mph limit beyond Puddleducks, which is currently in a 60mph zone, preferably as far as the Sports Ground. This would ensure that children walking along Station Road are not confronted by vehicles travelling at a high speed.
“The council say that these improvements may not be imminent due to scarce finances but hopefully it won’t be too before this safety issue is addressed.”
MONMOUTH AM Nick Ramsay has honoured the invaluable work of Britain’s Armed Forces at an event hosted by Monmouthshire County Council.
After attending a Flying the Flag event with County Councillors at County Hall, The Radyr, Usk, Mr Ramsay said:
“I was pleased to take part in this important mark of respect for our Armed Forces. Members of the Services risk their lives on a daily basis so that this country can be as secure as possible.
“We owe them a debt of gratitude and I’m delighted that Monmouthshire are today flying the flag.”
