Members of the public are being invited to have their say on the proposed Llandeilo bypass.

The consultation, to improve the A483 at Llandeilo and Ffairfach, is available online via the Welsh Government’s Project Website, and will run for eight weeks.

A series of Public Forum events (subject to further Welsh Government advice regarding Covid-19) are scheduled to be held at:

Tregib Sports Facilities, Ffairfach, on Friday, October 16, 11am-6.30pm; Friday, October 30, 11am-6.30pm; Saturday, October 31, 9.30am-12noon.

And at Llandeilo Fawr Civic Hall, 19 Crescent Road, on Monday, October 19, 10am-7pm; Tuesday, October 20, 10am-7pm.

Adam Price, the Member of the Senedd for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, said: “The second round of consultation has now opened, and the local community needs to show their support for the bypass proposals in order to keep the pressure on the Welsh Government in order to ensure it arrives.

“My colleagues and I at Plaid Cymru have fought hard for years to secure this development, and we need the local community to show their support at this pivotal juncture”

Carmarthenshire Executive Board Member for Environment, Cllr Hazel Evans said: “The first round of consultations showed a clear level of support for building a bypass, and the alternative option of traffic lights in the middle of the town will not make the necessary changes in air quality on that road. I would ask as many local people and businesses as possible to engage with the second round of the consultation. A bypass is the only feasible solution to the issue in Llandeilo."

Local Councillor, Edward Thomas said: “I would strongly urge all the residents of Llandeilo and Ffairfach to make their views known, it’s for them to make clear their opinions not to be swayed by others who do not live in the area and do not suffer from the pollution or the traffic gridlock."
