AM receives update on Llanellen flooding issue

LOCAL Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has been reassured by the Welsh Government Minister for Transport, Edwina Hart AM, that work is being carried out to address the issue of ongoing flooding problems on the A4042 at Llanellen Bridge.

The bridge flooded again recently, leading to the road being closed for a number of days.

Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:

“The Minister has told me that discussions are being held with landowners in the hope of finding a long term solution to the problem and that improved diversion signing is to be installed before the end of this financial year.

 “Local people are understandably extremely concerned at the prospect of facing another winter of flooding and chaos on the roads.

 “I will continue to monitor the situation on their behalf.”
