Highways crews deal with Storm Francis damage
Posted on: Wednesday 26 August 2020
Bridgend County Borough Council crews worked throughout yesterday and overnight to deal with storm damage across the county borough.
Highways crews dealt with a number of fallen trees and flooding issues while the strong winds also damaged the roof at the Watersports Centre in Rest Bay, Porthcawl.
Trees fell on a number of roads including the A4063 Aberkenfig bypass, the A48 between the Ewenny Roundabout and Broadlands Roundabout, the A4061 Aber Road Pricetown, Waterton Lane, Maes-y-felin in Wildmill and Eleanor Close in Pencoed.
Meanwhile, in Llangeinor, further repair work is planned in a narrow lane where a tree fell close to houses.
The Dipping Bridge at New Inn Road, Merthyr Mawr, remains closed at the moment with work ongoing to clear the debris after the river waters subsided. It is anticipated the road will reopen this afternoon.
Repair work is also due to be undertaken today on the roof of the Watersports Centre at Rest Bay.
