Swansea's Kingsway one-way system date set


A one-way system for buses will be introduced on a main Swansea road on 1 November following a number of deaths and serious accidents.

New signs and road markings will be added to The Kingsway in the coming weeks ahead of the changes.

Buses previously travelled in both directions in their designated lanes.

It comes after two pedestrians - Daniel Foss and Sgt Louise Lucas - died after being hit by buses on the road in recent years.

Other people have been seriously injured on the road.

Swansea council said the one-way system was being introduced ahead of more improvements to the area in the years ahead.

An off-road city centre cycle route is also being looked at as part of the changes.
