'Concerned but not surprised A44 labelled most dangerous road in Wales' - Mark Williams MP

Commenting on the findings of the Road Safety Foundation's 2014 EuroRAP report, which highlights the A44 between Aberystwyth and Llangurig as the most dangerous road in Wales, Mark Williams, said:

'I was concerned to hear of these findings, but sadly not surprised.  It was harrowing indeed to read the Report's summary of Wales, in which one of the three points made directly relates to the major East-West trunk road into Ceredigion.  There are no easy solutions to this problem, and certainly there are few, if any options for re-routing of traffic.  The old suggestion that we should again be using our rail to bring freight to the area is something which should be pursued, and we should not shirk in reminding people just how dangerous that stretch of road is, and how we all have responsibilities as drivers for safe driving.  Over the years too many innocent people have lost their lives along the A44.  I know the Trunk Road Agency will be digesting the contents of this Report.'
