Atlas Road near Beda Road - Raised Table Zebra Crossing

​The Council is informing residents about plans to make changes to the highway on Atlas Road at the junction of Beda Road. 

Concerns have been raised about vehicle speeds and pedestrian safety at this location. In response, officers from the Council have investigated options to make improvements which will help to create a safer highway environment. 

The main road safety issues identified were vehicle speeds and pedestrian safety.

This scheme has therefore been developed to:
  • Reduce vehicle speeds
  • To create a controlled pedestrian crossing

The measures will deliver a safer pedestrian environment, particularly for vulnerable road users and school pupils, and will improve accessibility to the community area, local shops and bus services.

Funding for this scheme has been secured from Welsh Government's Safe Routes in Communities Fund.

Additional information about traffic management 

Tabled Zebra Crossing. This is where a zebra crossing includes a speed table, or is sited at a tabled junction, ether as part of a wider set of traffic calming or on its own.

Tabled Junction. The provision of a tabled junction is similar to a road hump. The whole junction is raised to produce a platform, which reduces vehicle speeds. The provision of the tabled junction provides a safer junction by slowing down all vehicles approaching the junction thus providing a safer exit from the junction arms​.
