The age of the bypass may be coming to an end, says Waters – transportxtra
The Welsh Government’s deputy climate change minister Lee Waters talks to Rhodri Clark about calling time on bypasses, making 20mph a default limit and helping councils build a compelling case for active travel schemes
Decades of building bypasses may be drawing to a close in Wales, according to Lee Waters, the Welsh Government’s deputy climate change minister. The government made headlines in June when it announced a freeze on existing road schemes pending the outcome of a review, to be conducted by a Roads Review Panel.
