In late summer 2021, as the work on Mayals Road neared completion, an incident occurred on the lower shared use path when a lady, cycling down the path, went over the bonnet of a car emerging from Mumbles Bay Court retirement home. Fortunately she was not bady hurt. This incident has revived concerns about the safety of this SUP and this has prompted Wheelrights
to press again for the provision of a link
from near the top of the SUP, via Roman Court to the existing Toucan crossing at Blackpill. Wheelrights
member, Bill Gannon, has made the following two videos. This first video
takes you from the Blackpill Toucan to a point at the south end of Roman Court where a cut needs to be made to link it to the road which leads to Clyne Gardens. This second video
takes you the rest of the way to Mayals Road. And now that you've got to Mayals Road you can cycle down it
! You can see that you are not holding up traffic (nor - believe it or not - exceeding the speed limit).
