Caldicot Cross and Church Road Redevelopment
The redevelopment of Caldicot Cross and Church Road has created several major safety hazards. There is no longer a safe crossing point at Caldicot Cross. This is a major hazard for pedestrians, particularly the elderly, individuals with sight and or hearing difficulties and for children. The narrowing of Church Road has resulted in major safety issues for pedestrians and motorists. This is particularly an issue in the area of St Mary's Church where the road has been narrowed on a blind bend. Many near misses are being reported in both areas. The safety barrier from the footpath to Castle Park school was removed leaving nothing to prevent children running out onto the road. There is also a complete lack of adequate signage. Some of the workmanship is substandard and far from turning Church Road into a lovely street leading to the Castle we are left with an eyesore which bears no resemblance to the documents provided to residents.
We the undersigned call on Monmouthshire County Council to take immediate action to provide safe crossing points at Caldicot Cross and for the School children attending Castle Park School. We also call on the council to rectify all substandard work and provide safe attractive facilities at Church Road.
