Council Continues to Invest in County Borough’s Roads
Resurfacing works are being carried out on roads across Bridgend County Borough as part of the council’s investment into the local highway network.
Using funding from the council’s Capital Programme and an additional £500,000 recently allocated by Welsh Government, repairs are underway or planned on numerous roads, including major resurfacing works on one of the county borough’s busiest routes - the B4281 to the west of Aberkenfig.
Resurfacing works are planned on sections of the following streets:
- A4063 Bryn Terrace (Cymmer Hill), Caerau
- Hermon Road, Caerau
- Maesglas, Pyle
- Sychbant Avenue, Maesteg
- Maple Terrace, Maesteg
- Cae Bach, Llangeinor
- Tydraw Crescent, Pyle
- Sunnybank, Pyle
- West Street, Aberkenfig
- Meadow Street, Aberkenfig
- Heol Simonston, Brackla
- Heol Bradford, Bettws
- Penllwyngwent Industrial Estate
A further £1.5million has been allocated to be spent on resurfacing works later in 2021-22 with locations to be finalised by the end of this month.
Councillor Richard Young, Cabinet Member for Communities said:
"The council is investing millions of pounds into the highway network to make improvements for communities across the county borough.
"Areas where work is needed are identified by the council’s highways inspectors who use a series of assessments, condition surveys and skid-resistance tests while also taking into account issues raised by the public and local councillors.
"Every effort is made to limit disruption while highway improvement works are carried out."
