MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has again chased the Transport Minister, Edwina Hart AM, for news on when the flood alleviation work at Llanellen Bridge is likely to begin.
Speaking today, Mr Ramsay said:
“The Minister initially indicated that the work would be carried out before this winter, but delay has been caused by agreeing legal matters with the tenant and landowner.
“The Minister has informed me this week that a Memorandum of Agreement has been agreed with the tenant and that the agreement of the landowner is awaited.
“Fortunately, the temporary traffic lights that were in place on the A4042 due to the high water levels in the area have been removed for the time being, and I hope it will not be necessary for them to be reinstated again this winter.
“I will continue to keep a close eye on the situation in the hope that the work needed to prevent future flooding will soon be underway.”
