A petition campaigning for average speed cameras to be installed on an Swansea Valley road has attracted over 2,000 signatures.

On Tuesday June 4, an eight-vehicle collision on the A4067 between Glais and Pontardawe resulted in an 11-year-old having to be airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

Since the accident, a petition named Place average speed cameras on the A4067 has been set up by resident Neil Jones.

The petition states: "There are far too many accidents on the A4067 bypass from Ynystawe to Godrergraig due to dangerous driving and lack of respect for the rules of the road and other road users, so this petition is being set up to get average speed cameras in place to try to calm the traffic before anyone else is injured or killed."

One of the many people to have already signed the online petition is Tracy Kennedy whose daughter Kelly, 25, was killed in a head-on crash with two young male drivers who were racing each other at up to 90mph on the same stretch of road in 2016.

Supporting the speed cameras petition, Tracy Kennedy wrote: "There are too many people dying up there, my daughter died there three years ago because two boys thought it was fun to race.

“I don't want more families going through what we are now."

Others agree, writing that there are "too many accidents on this road" and that "something needs to be done".

Swansea Council explained that it was aware of "concerns of locals" about the stretch of road.

A spokesman said: "We are aware of the petition and of the concerns of locals about the route.

"At this stage it is important we wait for the outcome of any investigation by police into the causes of the most recent collision before making any decisions on possible traffic calming measures.

"The route travels across both Swansea and Neath Port Talbot boundaries so we would also need to discuss potential measures with NPT Council."

South Wales Police is appealing for witnesses to the serious collision that happened at 8.30am on Tuesday morning.
