Local residents and commuters are absolutely at the end of their tether with the new Sandy Road lights.

After months of roadworks, the lights have now been in place for over a month and it is obvious that simply adjusting the calibration of the lights is nothing like enough to prevent the tailbacks.

That’s why I am calling for a much more radical solution such as the idea, suggested to me by residents, of prohibiting traffic from turning right off Sandy Road into Maes-y-coed and likewise no right turn out of Maes-y-coed onto Sandy Road.

Clearly we need consultation, but this would be a cheap and easy solution that could be implemented quickly with minimal disruption. I appreciate some residents on the estates would have to drive a bit further round Denham Avenue on their way home from town, but this change to the lights would make their journey quicker.

We need decisive action and quickly from Carmarthenshire County Council on this vital issue.
