Traffic problems expected as man cut out of car on busy Cardiff road

A man was cut out of a car after an accident on the Gabalfa interchange on Wednesday afternoon the day after a £70,000 road safety scheme got under way.

Emergency crews were called to one of Cardiff’s busiest interchanges at around 1.17pm today to deal with the collision, which involved two vehicles and two casualties.

One man was taken to hospital with a broken leg after firefighters cut him out of his car while another casualty was taken to hospital with a suspected broken arm.

The accident comes two days after speed restrictions were put in place at the Gabalfa interchange for roadworks intended to curb accidents on the busy road.

In the five years between 2007 and 2012, there were 48 accidents there, including one fatality.

Work started on the first phase of Cardiff council’s scheme earlier this week, with the introduction of a 20mph advisory limit on the roundabout.

Motorists are warned to expect heavy traffic in the area this afternoon as emergency services work to clear the area.
