Following discussions with Cardiff Council, our Road Safety Working Group developed ideas aimed at improving road safety in and around Station Road.
During February we consulted with residents living on Station Road, Windsor Crescent, King's Road and King's Avenue. 73 responses were received.
Our report summarises the responses - and includes proposals which seek to reflect residents' views. The report concludes by explaining:
"We will discuss the above with those who would be directly affected by any changes (i.e those living on Station Road, Windsor Crescent, King's Road, King's Avenue and a small number of houses on Heol Isaf). Depending on the outcome of those discussions, we will then consider consulting with the wider community. That consultation would include a public meeting".
That process has been overtaken by events, however, since we faced the Coronavirus outbreak. In the meantime, our report can be seen below (in addition, its main conclusions were published in the Radyr Chain).
At the end of the day, of course, any decisions with regard to this area will be matters for Cardiff Council to pursue. Only Cardiff Council has the legal power, the money and the technical know-how to ensure that we can protect and develop Station Road. All that we can do is to develop a vision for the area - and to ask Cardiff to deliver that vision, for the benefit of our community.

Re. The Summary Report of Station Road Proposals. As a Radyr resident since 1975 at 7,The Uplands (next to Danybryn Cheshire Home) can I add an objection to the proposal to install a speedtable and Zebra crossing at the junction of Heol Isaf and Station Rd. Having been aware accidents at this junction between pedestrians and cars over the years the signal controlled junction with pedestrian barriers has created the best level of safety for young and old. I walk down to the shops each morning and often a second and third time, and I ALWAYS use the crossing. Now 75 yrs this level of safety is essential as personal balance and hearing are beginning to decline. As a motorist I would object for another reason. I always leave The Uplands via Windsor Rd as the junction at Heol Isaf/Drysgol Rd is blind(from Cardiff) and hence dangerous. The parking at the Primary School deters use of Parc Rd so I use the Heol Isaf/Windsor Rd junction. If it wasn't for the Pelican Crossing lights and the yellow hatching the traffic queuing up Windsor Rd would be considerable at times (esp around 9.00 am in school terms.) A zebra crossing would make this movement for traffic far more difficult.
