June completion date for A484 at Cwmduad

33 days ago

Works to repair and fully re-open the A484 at Cwmduad are scheduled for completion in June.

The road was partially re-opened in March, following extensive work to clear and make the area safe after a landslide which occurred during Storm Callum in October.

Carmarthenshire County Council’s highways team has been leading a highly complex operation to clear the highway and stabilise the land following the landslide which tragically claimed the life of a young man.

Contractors are due back on site at the end of this month as work continues to rebuild a parapet wall before the road can be fully re-opened.

The programmed completion date for re-opening is June 7.

Cllr Hazel Evans, Executive Board Member for Environment, said: “We understand that this has had a major impact on the local community and road users, and we would like to thank them for their patience and co-operation whilst the recovery and repair works have been carried out.

“This has been a very complex operation involving a number of agencies, and the safety of the public has been paramount. Please be assured works are continuing and the end is now in sight.”
