MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has contacted the Welsh Government’s Minister for Transport, Edwina Hart, AM, asking for an update on progress with regard to flood alleviation work on the A4042 at Llanellen.
Speaking today, Mr Ramsay said:
“Constituents are constantly chasing me about this worrying issue and are understandably fearful that the road may well be closed soon should the heavy rain continue.
“I understood that the detailed design and works package for the alleviation scheme had been completed and that negotiations for the land agreement were continuing between landlord and tenant.
“I have asked the Minister as a matter of urgency to let me know if these negotiations have now been completed. Local residents are extremely concerned that they may have to face another winter of road closures in the area – this has gone on for far too long.”
