More road closure information has been detailed by the Vale of Glamorgan council for the improvements to Five Mile Lane which start this weekend.

The road closure information for September have been listed below:

• 14 September, 7.00am – Monday 16 September, 7.00am
Closure from Sycamore Cross to Amelia Trust Farm
• 21 September, 7.00am – Monday 23 September, 7.00am

• 05 October, 7.00am – Monday 07 October, 7.00am
Closure from Welsh Hawking Centre to Moulton junction

All businesses within the area are open as normal and can be accessed via the opposite end to the closure.

A new speed limit of 30mph has been introduced from Sycamore Cross junction to the Weycock roundabout. This is to protect the workforce working in the vicinity of the highway and enable the safe completion of the necessary construction works for the Five Mile Lane Improvements.

The Five Mile Lane Improvements Project aims to improve safety along the existing A4226 (Five Mile Lane) road between the A48, Sycamore Cross junction to the Weycock Cross in Barry.
The existing road is a single carriageway road. The scheme involves a combination of improvements including:

• Construction of a new road that bypasses the winding central section of the existing road.
• Improved access and safety for non-motorised users in the form of a bridge and combined footway and cycleway.
• Works to improve the drainage for the existing carriageway.
• Introduction of 60mph speed limit from Sycamore Cross to the Welsh Hawking Centre.
• Safe crossing for equestrian users.

The existing road will remain open after the scheme is completed to provide local access to various farms along its length and as a safer route option for non-motorised users.

The only vehicular access to and from this road will be from the three proposed junctions linking to the new road. All other footpaths and street lighting along the existing Five Mile Lane will remain unchanged.
