Dawn Wood and Parking MeterThat is the call by Pontypridd Town Councillor, Dawn Wood.

Following the Covid Pandemic, the use of Debit and Credit Cards to pay for all items of shopping has increased dramatically.  So much so that many people no longer carry cash with them.  In most car parks throughout the country, payment can be made by either cash or card, but not in RCT.

Clean Air and Traffic Calming for Berw Road

Improve safety and air-quality on Berw Road now

We, the residents of Berw Road and nearby streets, call on Rhondda Cynon Taf Council to urgently address several issues affecting Berw Road, both historically and since the 2020 floods.

These include:

  1. Taking urgent steps to repair the White Bridge, so it can re-open to two-way traffic at the earliest possible opportunity.
  2. Identify ways to lessen air pollution and find solutions to reduce the amount of traffic on the road.
  3. Invest in traffic calming measures and safe pedestrian crossing points, to increase safety for residents.
  4. Ensure all homes that were flooded are provided with flood gates or a flood door from the money allocated to RCT Council from Welsh Government.


Every day, we have to suffer horrendous traffic, air pollution as well as dangerous conditions. We also live in constant fear of flooding. Please listen to our views and improve the safety of our community.

Help the campaign, sign the petition now.
