Westway Enhancements

What will the project do?

The project will:

  • provide more straightforward and legible pedestrian crossings on Westway, making is easier for pedestrians to cross between the Sandfields area and the City Centre;
  • introduce additional soft/green landscaping of the Westway corridor contributing to delivery of a green artery along key City highway routes aspired to by the City Centre Strategic Review;
  • offer reduced traffic signal phasing to improve traffic flows at the junction of Westway and Wellington Street whilst creating greater network resilience, and takes account of any future redevelopment of St. David’s;
  • introduce a new bus only gyratory (elongated roundabout) to enable better access to and from the bus station for buses;
  • enable removal of the northbound bus lane north and south of the bus station;

Future work may include widening of the footway adjacent the Tesco car park between Wellington Street and Oystermouth Road to create a better pedestrian access between the City Centre and the waterfront.

It will also pave the way for possible future changes regeneration of The Kingsway.
