Time to take another look?
FOR the past two days the Evening Post has been covering the news of a tragic road death.
The man was involved in a collision with a bus on one of Swansea's busiest roads and no one yet knows the circumstances.
However, it has prompted calls for The Kinsgway's unusual layout to be re-examined and highlighted safety concerns previously raised by the public.
Readers of this paper have said this is what they have feared for years since work took place to change the road in 2006.
Residents, businesses owners and visitors have been calling for the road layout to be returned to its original state — two lanes in either direction.
The current system has been labelled confusing and dangerous.
And the debate over the decision to make those changes has continued since, whether it has hinged on the impact on businesses in the area, to whether it puts visitors off the city centre, to the most important factor — people's safety.
The number of collisions involving pedestrians in recent years has risen from 18 between June 2006 to August 2009 to 25 from June 2009 to March 2012.
But the fears of people who use that road have been realised and the worst has happened.
Road accidents are inevitable. But surely it is time the authorities looked again at The Kingsway and whether safety can be improved.
