A major road in Swansea will have its speed limit set to 30mph for its entire length following more than 100 accidents over three years.

Carmarthen Road is the main route into the city centre from junction 47 of the M4 and some parts of it has a 40mph limit.

But Swansea council has acted in a bid to cut the number of accidents and fatalities.

As well as reducing the speed, cameras will also be installed at junctions.
