THE Vale of Glamorgan Council will be implementing temporary traffic restrictions during the NATO summit in Newport between Tuesday, September 2 and Friday September 5.

To ensure the free flow of traffic and to manage any inappropriate parking close to Cardiff Airport a temporary legal order will be in place on those days.

The order will prohibit waiting on Rhoose Road between the roundabout with Porthkerry Road and the road’s end.

The road will remain open but a temporary legal order will be in place to enable the police to close the road if required. Waiting will also be prohibited on the unnamed roads that lead from Porthkerry Road to Porthkerry village.

Residents on the roads affected will be receiving letters from the Council giving them further details of the restrictions.

Operational Manager for Highways and Engineering, Michael Clogg, said: “Access and parking for residents and businesses along Rhoose Road will be maintained at all times and every effort will be made to minimise any disruption.

"Temporary parking permits will be issued to all residents and businesses who are registered keepers of vehicles along Rhoose Road before September 2.”

The Vale of Glamorgan Council will be providing a private parking area at the Porthkerry Caravan site for any aviation enthusiasts who will be coming to Cardiff Airport during the NATO Summit.

A number of footpaths in Penmark will also be closed between Wednesday, September 3 and Friday, September 5: Footpath numbers 9, 9A, 10, 15, 20 along with the restricted byway known as Penmark no 18.
