Nia Griffith MP has written to Carmarthenshire County Council’s Executive Board member responsible for highways to ask for the repainting of yellow box road markings at the Hendy M4 junction to be a top priority.

“It is high time now for this problem to be resolved: Talycoed residents are fed up with having to nip out and weave their way through streams of traffic. It has been acknowledged that the painted yellow box markings on the road need to be repositioned, but now we need to see the work completed as soon as possible. That’s why I have written to Cllr Hazel Evans who has responsibility for the highways’ budget asking her to make this a TOP priority, to be completed at the very beginning of the new financial year in April, if not sooner. It is totally unacceptable that residents have had to wait so long for this relatively simple matter to be resolved.”

Community Councillor Steve Lloyd Janes added, “It is a disgrace that this work has still not been finished. We’ve had years of delay: the County Council has repainted one of the yellow boxes, but it is a job half done, and I would urge County to get on with it, so that residents have a clear road to get out of Talycoed.”
