New speed limits set on Western Avenue (A48)

New speed limits are in place on Western Avenue (A48) to improve road safety and air quality on one of Cardiff's busiest roads.

A 30 mph limit - previously set at 40 mph - is now in place on Western Avenue in both directions between Ely Roundabout and Gabalfa Interchange.

Speed limits on the remaining stretch of Western Avenue have also been modified, with the following changes in place:


  • Drivers travelling eastbound from Gabalfa Roundabout towards Newport can increase their speed from 30 mph up to 50 mph until they reach the Llanedeyrn Roundabout. The speed limit on this stretch of road was previously set at 70 mph. The speed limit to the east of Llanedeyrn Roundabout remains at 50 mph, increasing to 70mph as you approach the A48(M) and the M4.


  • Those travelling westbound from Llanedeyrn Roundabout towards Gabalfa Interchange can travel at 50 mph, until they reach the University Hospital of Wales where the speed limit reduces to 40 mph which remains unchanged. From Gabalfa Roundabout, drivers then enter the 30 mph limit until they reach Ely Roundabout.

All the new speed limit signs have been installed on Western Avenue (A48) and the new speed limits are live and can be legally enforced by the police.

Emergency fund supports households experiencing hardship


Some of the most vulnerable people in the city who have been adversely impacted by the pandemic have been supported by the Together for Cardiff Discretionary Emergency Fund.

The fund was launched in March to help households in the city who are experiencing severe hardship, when all other options of support have been exhausted.

The fund was kicked off with a donation of £10,000 from international business leader, Alan Peterson, and has continued to receive generous donations taking the total to more than £15,000, that has enabled the fund to support 29 households over the past two months.

More than £5,500 has been awarded to individuals and families to buy essentials such as washing machines, beds and mattresses, cookers, fridge freezers, fuel vouchers and essential good for new mothers such as milk, bottles and baby grows.

Each applicant to the fund is supported by the Council's Money Advice team, who discuss the household's circumstances and explore ways to maximise their income by accessing grants, discounts and benefits and help to deal with any debts they have.
