Local Assembly Member, Nick Ramsay has written to the Welsh Government’s Transport Minister, Edwina Hart AM, to request action to prevent future road closures of the A4042 at Llanellen Bridge due to flooding.
Speaking today Nick said:
“A number of constituents have contacted me recently about this recurring problem and something clearly needs to be done.
“I’ve written to the Minister to point out the traffic chaos and disruption for motorists and local residents when the bridge has to be closed. Closures seem to be occurring more frequently these days due to the exceptionally wet weather we are experiencing.
“I’ve asked the Welsh Government to let me know what plans they have to improve this unacceptable situation which cannot be allowed to continue.”
