Traffic Problems: Sandy Road

Burst water main misery for Sandy Road residents

SANDY Road residents have had another day of heavy traffic causing misery and pollution as vehicles came to a standstill due to temporary traffic controls following a burst water main.

Dwr Cymru is carrying out emergency works to fix the damage on the A484 near Maes y Coed.

Temporary traffic lights have been put in place  and this has had a knock-on effect on traffic along Sandy Road.

The traffic is a nightmare, it is like Piccadilly Circus at rush hour

Work is expected to be complete by tomorrow, Thursday (Oct 4).

The road has already suffered with traffic problems in recent years and this latest incident has angered some residents, who contacted Llanelli Online to air their views.

Local resident Richard said: “The traffic is a nightmare, it is like Piccadilly Circus at rush hour.”

Vicky Jones posted on our Facebook page: “I left the college at 4.15pm, I wanted to go home so would be heading to town but could see the traffic outside the college coming from Pwll wasn’t moving. I turned right hoping to go on the Stradey Woods road but that was closed! Had to go over Pembrey mountain, scratching my car in the hedge as I had to pull in to the left as a Mercedes coming towards me refused to give any room. Took me over half an hour to get into town! The traffic from Pwll was queued all the way back to the turning for Cilymaenfrydd nursing home.”
