Railway Boundary Safety Fencing

Please circulate to all Borth Railway Station Users

I was asked to meet Network Rail engineers at Borth Station today and was informed on safety grounds they are going to install metal railing fencing along the existing earth packed path that leads from the end of the platform towards the level crossing.  There is a mobile metal barrier at the start of the path which says no entry, which is often ignored as people use the existing break in the fence as a shortcut to/from the railway station.  I informed them the shortcut has been used for many years, saving time for those from part of the village using the station and furthermore before the path became overgrown, the full length of the path had been used as an access route as far back as the 1940’s that I remember.  Despite my comments the fencing is going ahead on the grounds of rail safety and should commence within the next 2 weeks.  I asked if it could be delayed so I could update Borth CC on 1 April but they have a Network Rail fencing team working in the area therefore they will be getting on with the job.  Eifion Jones, Ceredigion CC PROW Officer was in attendance and confirmed there is no registered public footpath from the railway platform over the packed soil route.

It would be useful to put this information on the website to forewarn those who presently use the shortcut and possibly some of you will be contacted by those wishing to make representations.

Regards

Cllr Ray Quant

Speed Checks

 
Dyfed-Powys Police and Borth Community Council were out again this morning 19th Dec recording vehicle speeds in Borth as part of the Community Speed Watch Scheme. 
 
Vehicles travelling over the speed limit will be recorded and verified immediately and details given to the Police who will act on the information. 
 
We are now ready to set up more volunteers from the community, the more volunteers - the more we can do. Please let us know if you'd like to find out more or to join, or phone Gwenllian Ashley on 01970 872004 who is coordinating. 
 
We will also be expanding the locations we are recording speeds.  Hoping this raises the profile and reminds people to keep speeds down to the speed limit.
