Overgrown hedges and trees

I work in Mellyn Mair business centre Cf3 2EQ And I am fed up of taking my life in my hands trying to cross this very Dangerous road to get to from from my place of work,. I have to cross the road from the footbridge over the now closed Mardy Road Railway Bridge. The hedgerows are so over grown on the right hand side of the road as you face Peterstone Wentloog that it makes it very difficult to see any vehicles coming around the bend in the road more so when I come from my place of work and I want to cross over the road to get back to the footbridge. The traffic has increased tremendously since the huge new Aldi Distribution centre opened, with huge juggernaut lorries and of course their many hundreds of employees using this road, not including all the other businesses and their staff that have units and workshops down there, also Neils Soil Supply Lorries and people who actually live in Peterstone Wentloog. There are NO traffic calming measures anywhere along this road, and the drivers of cars as well as lorries, "Speed" up and down as if their backsides where on fire. Please please please do something about this before someone has a serious accident or someone is KILLED. If it is too expensive to put speed bumps/ cameras/ or pedestrian crossings in, then at least cut back ALL the hedges and trees on ALL the BENDS along this now lethal road. Thank you very much. Mrs Parker.

  • Still Nothing has been done, It is a very, very dangerous road, more traffic and heavy goods lorries and juggernauts Thundering around the blind bend, you don't see them until they are on top of you. if Cardiff can waste £419,000 on just 6 digital speed cameras around the city with 2 of them on the same Road!!!! Then they can spare a few thousand putting traffic lights or road calming measures along this stretch of road, I'm quite willing to meet a Councillor and show him/her where they need to go, after I watch him/her trying to cross this road.
