Hundreds of people gathered earlier to protest against plans

Construction company Tarmac hopes to expand Creigiau Quarry.


Spelling out "no" to the resumption of quarrying near their homes,


around 200 people from the neighbouring villages


of Creigiau and Pentyrch met on the recreation ground next


to the quarry to capture their opposition using a drone.


If the plans are approved to reopen and expand the quarry,


residents fear it will cause noise and air pollution,


as well as causing gridlock on the roads.


I've actually lived through the quarry when it was open


before and so I know how bad it is, the blasting, cracks in the walls,


things coming off people's shelves and things like that.


Going back to 2002, the road structures and everything has


changed immensely since then and we just haven't got the roads


Quarrying stopped here in 2002, but Tarmac says it's


an important source of limestone for the construction industry.


The company says there will be passing places on roads and it's


agreed to restrictions on quarry traffic travelling through Creigiau.


Residents are also concerned that the planned expansion


of the quarry would bring operations close to Pentyrch primary school.


Cardiff Council says it would be inappropriate to comment at this
