Close Kingsway in Swansea - no more deaths!

Campaign to get the Kingsway, a main road, closed in Swansea during weekend nights after Geraint Flynn died after being hit by a car in February 2005. It is the road where boy racers congregate and Geraints mum has had much public support. The council have agreed to do a full study on the cost of closing it.

It follows a petition signed by 12,000 people, collected by the family of a 19-year-old student who died after being run over two years ago.
Geraint Flynn's family said the Kingsway was being used by "boy racers" who were endangering revellers. Council leader Chris Holley said a report would be commissioned on the effects of closing the road. The proposal was backed by a full meeting of Swansea council on Thursday evening. Read the article
