Transport plans for crossroads
12:00am Tuesday 12th February 2013 in News
Plans for a modern rural transport interchange at one of the busiest crossroads in Ceredigion look set to get the go-ahead this week.
The county council want to create a park and ride facility at Synod Inn with parking for nearly 60 cars, an off road bus pick up point plus access road for vehicles.
The plan also includes new pavements and crossing points for pedestrians.
Some local residents have objected raising concerns that it would make the crossroads even busier, fears that travellers would use the car park plus it would prove a magnet for ‘boy racers’.
Planners are due to debate the proposal at tomorrow’s development control committee with officers recommending approval.
A report to the committee says that the council is under pressure from bus operators to improve the crossroads.
It adds: “Concerns have been raised by residents over the additional noise and traffic that will be generated from the development. The rural aspect of the landscape of the stie at present will be urbanized. However it will provide a safer option to the existing bus stops.”
