Sandy road lights being adapted to suit traffic flow

Published

on

NEW traffic lights in Sandy Road, Llanelli, are undergoing a period of adaption over the next few weeks to improve the flow of vehicles.

Specialist traffic engineers are monitoring traffic movements about the traffic lights that became operation this week at the junctions of Sandy Road with Maesycoed.

The works were required as part of the planning consent for the new Stradey housing and retail development to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and traffic entering the A484 from Maesycoed.

Since the signals have been operational there have been delays in traffic movements. The new lights will adapt to traffic movements over a period of time.

County executive member for transport services, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “The authority is mindful of the level of public concern regarding the delays and has arranged for specialist traffic engineers to investigate the function of the lights to try and minimise the disruption for the public.”

County executive board member for transport Cllr Hazel Evans said: “As with all road safety measures of this kind on busy roads there has to be a period of study to assist light timing change adaptions to understand and improve traffic flow.”

    No right turn into Maes-y-Coed Road for vehicles travelling from Llanelli would greatly help they could access the area from the Denham Avenue roundabout which they have the right of way to turn right.
    Vehicles would be allowed to turn into Maes-y-Coed Road travelling east from Burry Port as this maneuver does not stop the flow of traffic.

    Can’t find an article about Stradey Park Residents approaching pedestrians walking within the site saying they cannot walk or drive in the site as it is forbidden (private roads)
    Two signs on the railings in front of the Memorial Garden “Vehicles and Pedestrians access to residents only”
    Locals are furious LOOK INTO IT – also site complete 350 homes NO play area for the children ?

Lucy’s Law gets support from AMs

Published

on

AN EVENT calling for the introduction of ‘Lucy’s Law’ was held in the Senedd last Wednesday (Jul 11).

Assembly Members Eluned Morgan and Vikki Howells sponsored the event in support of an immediate ban on the sale of puppies by pet shops and other third-party commercial dealers, in response to growing concerns from animal charities that not enough is being done to prevent illegal breeding and animal cruelty.

The sale of puppies through commercial third-party dealers both sustains and is dependent upon the existence of ‘puppy farms’, where puppies are bred for maximum profit and with minimal regard for animal welfare.

Although very few high street pet shops sell puppies these days, the third-party trade remains significant across the UK with dealers operating from a diverse array of premises including private homes and puppy superstores. Evidence suggests that the trade sources puppies bred in Wales.

According to animal charity, CARIAD, a ban is the essential first step towards ending the practice of farming dogs for profit with little or no regard for their welfare or their fitness as family companions. Stress, increased risk of disease, poor breeding practices and irresponsible selling tactics are all associated with the method of third-party puppy selling.

Respected Vet and campaigner Marc Abraham spoke during the event at the National Assembly for Wales, he said:
“It simply isn’t enough to license puppy sellers, we must have a full and complete ban, to stop the trade and supply of dogs bred on such an extensive scale. Lucy’s Law will help to change the way dogs are bred in this country. It will make the process more transparent and raise standards, improving the economy and employment opportunities. This is a revolution in dog breeding and it will do wonders for the reputation of Wales as a responsible dog breeding nation.”

Eluned Morgan AM said: “There are many documented cases of puppy farming, particularly in the region I represent. Puppy smuggling is also an issue with several reported cases of puppies entering our ports from Ireland. The adoption of Lucy’s Law in Wales sends a strong message that as a nation we expect the highest animal welfare practises and that the cruel act of puppy farming can be consigned to history. I want us to be ambitious and to take the lead on this legislation which I hope will be a real possibility following this event in the Senedd.”

Vikki Howells AM said: “I am pleased to be jointly hosting this event today with important contributions from Pup Aid and CARIAD and Marc the vet who has done so much to raise awareness of Lucy’s Law across the United Kingdom and now here in Wales too.”

Legislation relating to Lucy’s Law is devolved to the Welsh Government under the 1956 An
