Cllr. Ed Bridges has persuaded Cardiff Council to grit Flaxland Avenue footbridge in snowy conditions.

After last winter's heavy snow, the Gabalfa Focus Team have successfully campaigned for the Flaxland Avenue footbridge to be gritted in icy conditions.

A chilly Cllr. Ed Bridges (pictured) saw just how hard it was to cross the bridge in icy weather. Proof, if it were needed, that the Focus Team really do go out in all weathers to improve our area!

Ed told us: "Following our request, the council have agreed to add the bridge to the list of routes which will be salted in icy weather. That should help all the patients, visitors, staff and students who need to use this bridge in all weathers."
