MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has been informed by the Welsh Government’s Minister for Transport, Edwina Hart AM, that there is little likelihood that the temporary traffic lights in the centre of Abergavenny will be removed in the near future due to delays with the refurbishment of the fire damaged buildings in Monk Street.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:
“This is disappointing news. A number of constituents have contacted me recently to complain about delays to traffic passing through the centre of town, resulting in tailbacks up the Monmouth Road as far as the junction with Station Road.
“What’s particularly worrying is that this situation is likely to get worse during the busy summer months.
“If traffic problems become a major issue over the coming weeks I will be taking the matter up with the Minister as a matter of urgency.”
