RESIDENTS in Conwy and Denbighshire have been telling us what 20mph roads should revert back to 30mph.

On April 23, transport secretary Ken Skates set out a three-phase plan on 20mph whilst outlining his priorities to the Senedd. This includes a "genuine programme of listening to people"; Working in partnership with key bodies and to deliver the necessary changes on the ground. 

The Welsh Government is working with local authorities to "prepare the ground for changes" and revise the guidance on which roads can be exempt from 20mph. 

Revised guidance will be published in July with councils expected to start "detailed consultation" on changes from September.

The cabinet secretary is encouraging people in Wales to let their council know where they think 20mph could be better targeted.

Here are suggestions put forward by readers so far:

Bob Holmes and his wife would like to see the following roads returned to 30mph in Conwy County: Bryn Lupus Road, Llanrhos and along Deganwy Road to Glan y Mor Road; Conwy Road, Llanrhos down to A470 roundabout; Colwyn Road continuation over Little Orme and 20mph near to the paddling pool; Llandudno Road, Penrhyn Bay right through to West End, Colwyn Bay; the Promenade, Coast Road, from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn Bay and Gloddaeth Avenue into Gloddaeth Street, Llandudno.

Geoff Powell sent in his thoughts: "My main concern is in relation to a three mile stretch of road which along its length is almost completely 20mph. The road I refer to is a major route for visitors to Rhos on Sea, Penrhyn Bay and Llandudno.

"I refer to the B5115 from the West End of Colwyn Bay to the east end of the Llandudno Promenade. I travel this road frequently as a driver and reluctantly as a cyclist. Inevitably I find myself in a convoy of up to 20 or more cars due to the car at the head of the convoy travelling below the speed limit. 

"As a cyclist it is quite definitely dangerous because I find myself sandwiched between cars which is quite unnerving."

Kelvin thinks all the roads in Denbighshire should revert back from 20mph to 30mph. He said: "It's ludicrous this 20mph. The Welsh government has alienated its loyal voters with this policy and no one wants it if the truth be told."

Stephanie Vonbank shared her thoughts. She said: "We live on Abergele Road on Penmaen Bod Elias, Old Colwyn. The road from Aldi up to the top of Penmaen was 30mph and it was changed to 20mph. 

"You can barely make it up the hill at 30mph and now it's 20mph its doesn't make sense. After Penmaen Bod Elias it changes to 40mph and this is correct until you get down to the roundabout at Llanddulas where it changes to 30mph again. Why this was changed... all of us that live on Penmaen are baffled."  

Kerry Smith-Williams put forward these changes: "Specific roads that should be reverted back to 30mph - A525 Trefnant; A525 Denbigh Green; Denbigh Industrial Estate and A525 Llanrhaeadr."

Alisha Edwards gave her thoughts: "I'm suggesting roads that should be 30mph instead of 20mph. This is due to constant traffic jams and so many incidents nearly occurring since this limit has changed. These include Victoria Road both ways as traffic is horrendous; through Rhuddlan and Meliden Road. All others which contain heavy flows of traffic, especially when speed reaches 40mph and 60mph and suddenly there is a drop to 20mph. It is so dangerous and causing so many accidents."

A resident, who did not wish to give his name, suggested Abergele Road, Old Colwyn, should revert back to 30mph. He said: "From past Aldi, I think it could go back to 30mph all the way up to the 40mph zone. It takes forever to get up the hill at 20mph and going from a 40mph down to 20mph is just ridiculous." 

When outlining plans in the Senedd, Mr Skates said the decision [for change] ultimately rests with the highway authorities.

He said: "Highway authorities will be able to start the process to adjust roads speed limits later this year; the public and local authorities will guide the changes."

Mr Skates said there is currently a range of pressures facing local Governments and the Welsh Government does not expect councils to cover the costs to adjust speed limits back to 30mph.
