Barry project sparks doubt

A Welsh Assembly Government member has voiced fears over a road planned for the next stage of the Barry Waterfront development.

A consortium comprising Persimmon Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Homes has put forward £250 million proposals including 2,000 homes, a cafe quarter, open space and park areas along with shops. Ove Arup & Partners provided the transport assessment.

Regional assembly member Chris Franks said: "While I support developing vacant land at Barry Waterfront, it has to be the right development. I am concerned that the additional road to the island will not be adequate."

Richard Keogh, speaking for the Barry Waterfront Consortium, replied: "Our specialist consultants have designed the road with sufficient capacity to accommodate forecast traffic associated with the development and traffic likely to reroute through the site."
