Road changes made following deaths

Posted in: Bus Accidents Public Transport Road Traffic Accidents 

Following two deaths and a number of injures, Swansea’s Kingsway has been transformed into a new one-way system. Before the change, cars and lorries were restricted to one-way traffic, yet buses and taxis used a separate two-way section. However, after the second person was killed crossing the road in the last two years, the local authority decided to implement changes to the road system – installing a one-way system for all traffic. All motorists and road users will now travel in a westerly direction.

March of this year saw Sgt Louise Lucas killed after being hit by a bus, following the death of 37-year-old Daniel Foss in 2013. The changes came as a result of a system review and the withdrawal of Swansea’s Ftr Metro bendy bus, which the system was originally designed for.

“The route is [now] safer for pedestrians”

Sgt Louise Lucas, a mother-of-three, was killed after being hit by a bus off duty. Her eight-year-old daughter also suffered minor injuries in the accident. They were both airlifted to hospital, but Sgt Lucas sadly passed away. Mr Foss was also struck by a First Cymru bus in June 2013 and died in hospital.

David Hopkins, cabinet member for environment and transportation, said: “The change to a one-way route for buses and cars will hopefully mean the route is safer for pedestrians.
