New bollards erected by roundabout to help protect Llandudno residents

A TOTAL of 10 new bollards have been erected in Llandudno following incidents which saw vehicles leave the highway and collide with a garden wall, and into a resident’s kitchen.

These have been placed between Churchill Close and the nearby roundabout.

Following the latest incident last August, Janet Finch-Saunders, Member of the Welsh Parliament for Aberconwy, has liaised with North Wales Housing; Mr Geraint Edwards, Head of Environment, Roads and Facilities, Conwy County Borough Council; and other representatives in the region.

Mrs Finch-Saunders secured the delivery of these protective bollards.

Commenting on the works, she said: “I am delighted that Conwy County Borough Council has listened to the concerns raised and delivered a solution which should help residents of Churchill Close feel safer in their homes.

“Nobody should have to be subjected to the trauma of a vehicle crashing into their home, so I hope that the bollards provide the defence required to protect residents.

“Residents may also be assured to learn that the design of the roundabout has not been deemed a causation factor of incidents.”
