Resilient Roads scheme on the A4058 to reduce flood risk

A4058 Gyfeillon Road, Trehafod - Copy

Road users will notice work activity on the A4058, south of Trehafod, from next week – with all elements of work requiring traffic lights being scheduled at night. 

The Council will start work on Monday, March 4, on a Resilient Roads scheme which will deliver essential drainage work and improve the road’s resilience to flooding.

During periods of heavy rainfall, a known issue at this location is that water from several culverts above the railway line overtops the retaining wall.

The upcoming work, over five weeks, will improve the highway drainage system to convey this accumulation of surface water to the river.

All work in the daytime will be carried out while maintaining two-way traffic on the A4058 (Gyfeillon Road).

Night shifts will be used to carry out elements of the scheme that require temporary traffic lights, to reduce disruption to road users and the community.

Some noise disruption is anticipated during the night works, but methods to minimised this as much as possible will be put in place.

The scheme is being delivered through Welsh Government’s Resilient Roads Fund, and will be carried out on site by the Council’s Streetcare team.

Thanks to residents and road users in advance for your cooperation.
