South Wales Upper Rhondda Fach, Relief Road to continue from Tylorstown upto Maerdy has never been completed. Money was allocated from grants at one point and were then spent on other developments in other areas. It wasnt spent on the road it was intended for. A forgotten area.

More details

A new relief road would aid people living in the communities to drive safely, better public transport travel, as there is only one main road from Tylorstown to Maerdy, the congestion is appalling and any emergency services have difficulty.
Any environmental emergencies to the area, any crisis, results in communities being unable to travel, leave their villages as cannot get through. It is dangerous to only have one main road. Also stops businesses from coming to the area too.

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not directly responsible for.

We can only accept petitions about things the Government or Parliament are directly responsible for.

Decisions relating to the current moratorium on the building of new roads in Wales is a matter for the Welsh Government. You could therefore start a petition to the Welsh Government calling on them to end this moratorium so that this relief road can be built, if that is something you'd like to see happen.
