Tondu Welsh Water works paused to allow for traffic resolution to be found
Posted on: Thursday 09 March 2023
Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water have agreed to pause works in Tondu for the foreseeable future with the aim of finding a solution to the consequential traffic issues.
The works are taking place at the Maesteg Road (A4063) traffic lights junction in Tondu and will finish for the time being on Friday 10 March 2023.
The contractors are now working to reinstate the highway so the original traffic light set up can return in readiness for the weekend.
Despite the works being delivered by Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water, the council has stepped in to monitor the situation at peak times and to meet with the traffic management contractor employed by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water to try and find a solution.
Due to the nature of the works, the contractors were unable to avoid working at peak times and tried a variety of measures to improve the situation.
Further meetings will now be held between the council and Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water to plan for the completion of the works possibly later in the year.
The council would like to thank residents and motorists for their patience and understanding at this time.
