School safety a priority as Swansea Conservatives launch Sketty Contract

Suzy Davies, the Assembly Member for South Wales West, officially launched the Welsh Conservative’s “Sketty Contract” last week outside Sketty Primary School. In attendance along with the Assembly Member were Dan Boucher, Craig Lawton, Tony Lloyd, and Dayne Powell, four of the Welsh Conservative’s candidates for Sketty.Ms Davies, who is a member of the Assembly’s Children and Young People Committee, said that “The safety of our children has got to be a major priority, and that is particularly the case when they are travelling to and from school.” 

Emmanuel Developments - Conservatives Campaigning against Proposed Properties

The former Emmanuel School playing fields site, situated off Derwen Fawr Road, has been earmarked for the construction of 65 new homes. This has been met with widespread opposition from residents. The Emmanuel School site has already had 29 homes built on it by Taylor Wimpey, however the majority of these remain unsold. Furthermore, with Derwen Fawr Road becoming a bottle-neck at this location the flow of traffic is already disrupted.

Putting the Breaks on Speeding

At present the only measures in place are a number of electronic signs to signal the speed that motorists are travelling at. This alone has had little affect in slowing motorists down; in fact they often have the opposite outcome as individuals attempt to see how fast they can travel.

School Parking Chaos

Road safety is an issue that should not be taken for granted, especially around schools. However, throughout Sketty we are still seeing signs that traffic needs to be managed in a better way.
