Major Investment to Improve Carmarthenshire Roads
Carmarthenshire County Council has announced that almost £2.5m is being invested in road improvements over the next year
A host of works are underway with six resurfacing schemes already complete. Around 40 sections of road will be resurfaced after funding was made available from the council’s capital works programme and the Welsh Government.
This significant investment is in addition to a programme of preventative dressing treatment which has already been completed.
The sections of road being resurfaced have been identified as a priority based on road condition, usage and strategic importance. Comprehensive traffic management will be in place whilst the works are being carried out and all schemes will be published in advance with full details available on www.roadworks.org
The council’s executive board member for transport, Cllr Hazel Evans said, “This is a significant amount of money that we have secured to improve our roads in the county. Whilst we can’t treat every road, the combined improvements will support safer and improved journeys for Carmarthenshire’s road users. All roadworks will be publicised in advance so motorists can plan journeys to avoid the area and take an alternative route. We will minimise as far as possible the impact on road users by careful planning, however, some disruption cannot be avoided, so please bear with us. We thank everyone in advance for their co-operation and patience.”

Further information on the remainder of the programme will be published in due course. Please note that these dates may vary due to unforeseen conditions or adverse weather. For up-to-date details of current and planned roadworks please visit www.roadworks.org
