Dear Ceredigion Council,

On the 16th of December 2019 a lorry went through the fence over the underpass in Penparcau, Aberystwyth. The accident was in close proximity to the underpass which is used be a large amount of residents and is close to the local school, village hall, community centre and play park.

Would it be possible to know if the metal fencing that the lorry appears to have gone through meets current safety and impact standards that one would expect near a busy trunk road, especially in close proximity to a school?

Will additional barriers be put in place eg armco?

At the underpass I noticed that the lighting was poor (yellow) perhaps these were old fashioned lights rather than modern LED ones which would conform to modern safety standards, there were missing slats from the wooden fencing between the school and underpass. I noticed that the incline was quite steep when leaving the underpass. I don't know if this conforms to modern standards for wheelchair users and how this might affect their safety and ability to leave the underpass if there was another accident. The underpass appeared to be very wet with water not draining away and drains blocked.

Near the roundabout a few of the signs for children crossing, elderly and the road incline appeared to be missing their red outline.

I'm not sure if all of this is something for the Trunk Road to look into or if it is the responsibility of Ceredigion County Council. I would appreciate it if the issue could be raised either way as there are children and people with mobility issues who use the subway.

Yours faithfully,

Alun ap Dafydd
