Ammanford commuters warned of mountain road closure

THE closure of a mountain road throughout February will cause inconvenience for commuters travelling to Swansea from Ammanford, a Swansea City councillor has warned.

Cllr Ioan Richard spoke out after it emerged that a section of Rhydypandy Road – from Llangyfelach to Ammanford – would be closed for a period of four weeks.

"A lot of Ammanford motorists use that road both in the morning and evenings," Cllr Richard told the Guardian. "My understanding is that the closure is the result of the installation of a solar park at a farm near Morriston."

A Swansea City Council spokesman said: "A temporary road closure has been agreed with the applicant and it is anticipated the works will take approximately four weeks to complete.

"We will be meeting with the applicant early in the new year to look at ways to minimise the disruption for traffic."

I live on the mountain road - on the only small straight stretch before/after the road twists and bends on the climb. A month without the irresponsible and dangerous speeding drivers that use the road as their personal race track will mean our children and pets will be safer for a short while.

Huw - I do choose to live there, and love it. There is a 30mph speed limit that is ignored by many drivers. It is a small street and we all have serious concerns for our elderly and young neighbours safety due to speeding vehicles. No one should have to just "live with it" or put up anti social and illegal driving. Its a handy road and should be used - but with consideration for the safety of others.
