Consultation on road improvements on A40 between Penblewin Roundabout and Redstone Cross
Motorists, residents and members of the public are being invited to share their views on proposed improvements to a stretch of road on the A40.
Following two sets of Public Information Exhibitions held earlier this year, which displayed the shortlist of options, a new consultation has opened on plans to make changes to the road between the Penblewin Roundabout and Redstone Cross.
There are three parts to it:
- the initial identified preferred solution
- enhancements that could be made to the preferred solution
- active travel measures that could potentially be incorporated.
A number of problems have been identified following collection and analysis of information and data. The evidence and data collected included geophysical surveys, biodiversity surveys, traffic counts, journey time reliability, public transport provision, seasonality traffic data, accident severity data, socioeconomic data and environmental constraints.
There are eight objectives on the scheme, including network resilience and improved accessibility, improve the Redstone Cross Junction safety and thereby reducing the number and severity of collisions, promote active travel by cycling, horse riding and walking to provide opportunities for healthy lifestyles and promote social inclusion, integrating the local transport network to better connect local communities to key transport hubs.
Taking these challenges into account, four shortlisted options were identified for further consideration.
- option 1A – Northern route with staggered T-junction at Redstone Cross
- option 1B – Northern route (no Redstone Cross Junction)
- option 2A – Southern route with staggered T-junction at Redstone Cross
- option 2B – Southern route (no Redstone Cross Junction)
All options are set out clearly in the consultation.
A Consultation Event is planned to be held at the Queen’s Hall, Narberth on 2nd September 2019, between the hours of 12 – 8pm.
Transport Minister Ken Skates said:
There are clear challenges we face in light of delivering this project, and we want to make sure anyone who will be impacted by the changes has a chance to have their say in the available options.
I encourage anyone who lives or works in the area to get involved in the consultation.
