AN ASSEMBLY member has called for urgent action to make a main road safe.
Darren Millar, AM for Clwyd West, is calling for safety improvements to be made on Conway Road, Mochdre.
Cars regularly use the pavement to park on the busy road, and Mr Millar claims this is putting the safety of pedestrians at risk. The pavement is owned by the shopkeepers on Conway Road.
Responding to constituents’ concerns, he arranged a site meeting with the council’s Highways Department and council representatives to see what could be done about the issue.
Speaking following the meeting, Mr Millar said: “I have been contacted by many local residents about this problem. It’s a disgrace that cars use the pavement to park in this way - its putting the safety of local shoppers and children getting to school at risk.
“The situation has dragged on for too long, something must be done.”
Gwyn Hughes, head of operations for Conwy County Borough Council, said: “Most of this pavement area is privately owned. We would urge drivers to park in the free council-owned car park around the corner in Station Road.”
