AM presses Minister for update on Llanellen flooding

LOCAL Assembly Member Nick Ramsay is again pressing the Welsh Government Minister for Transport, Edwina Hart AM, for a further update on progress towards resolving ongoing flooding problems on the A4042 at Llanellen Bridge.

The A4042 was closed once again recently following heavy rain, with traffic diverted into Abergavenny via Llanfoist.

Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:

“This route, which passes through Llanellen, is not suitable for heavy vehicles and the sooner the flood problems near the bridge are resolved the better.

“Local people are understandably extremely worried that they may have to face another winter of flooding and chaos on the roads.

“I look forward to hearing what design proposals have been made to mitigate further flooding in this area and when these proposals are likely to be put in place. This situation has gone on far too long.”
