community news


Despite strenuous efforts by 3 councillors, and the assurance I received from WW, yesterday at 2.45pm, that the traffic lights on Oystermouth Square would be recalibrated to allow a better flow of traffic into West Cross , Mumbles and surrounding areas, this morning I received a phone call informing me that due to the ‘pelican crossing’ by Boots the Chemist, WELSH WATER were not going to adjust the ‘timings’ of the lights.
It was pointed out to WW that what with the ‘better’ weather conditions and also it being ‘half term’, the problem had been magnified, with tail backs as far as Sketty Lane.

WW did inform me that the inconvenience would only be until this coming Thursday.
Let us wait and see, and hope this is so.

Cllr. Helen Mitchell,

Chair of Mumbles Community Council
