Short-term measures to improve road safety at a dangerous ‘black spot’ between Milton and Pembroke Dock have been touted by the Welsh Government.

Campaigners have long been calling for changes to be reconsidered on the layout of the Nash Fingerpost Junction on the A477 to A4075 road, which saw a recent horrific accident on May 13 take the life of twenty-nine-year-old motorcyclist Ashley Rogers of Kilgetty.

Pembrokeshire County Council cabinet member for social care and safeguarding and county councillor for the Lamphey ward Cllr Tessa Hodgson has provided an update on the treacherous stretch of road.

“An update from Welsh Government regarding some short-term measures they are planning at the Fingerpost Junction, they include - signing, road markings, possible minor junction layout changes for enhanced visibility and the introduction of U-turn prohibitions at the junction,” she said.

“They have also committed to a period of monitoring and will then assess the suitability and enforcement requirements of a speed restriction and provide a business case for the introduction of traffic signals.

“I will continue to campaign for significant improvements to this junction and thank Senedd Member Sam Kurtz, MP Simon Hart and Cosheston Community Council for their continued support,” she added.
