Vital repairs to one of Swansea's busiest roads are well underway after suffering the effects of prolonged wintry conditions.

Fabian Way - the main road into and out of Swansea is getting a new road surface as part of a half million pound investment.

Work commenced recently and will continue through the night for the next few weeks, replacing the damaged road surface with a new one.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment Services, said: "Fabian Way is an important arterial route for Swansea and we have around 10,000 cars using it daily. This work is much needed after the prolonged cold and wet conditions we have seen through the winter

"Carrying out the work at night also means we are avoiding disruption for motorists travelling into and out of the city during the day."

Funding for the resurfacing scheme is included in the recent £7.5 million investment confirmed by Swansea Council as part of the 2018/19 budget settlement.

Highway teams will be travelling city-wide to complete the annual PATCH program later this year and plans are also in place to carry out resurfacing work at the Ynysforgan roundabout.  

Since January 2018, teams have also filled in more than 1,200 potholes as part of the 48hr pothole pledge made by the council.

Cllr Thomas added: "The Council has ploughed additional funds in to its highway maintenance budget this year. This will help us to deal with some of the worst affected roads in the city and also to continue work planned through our planned five-year highway programme."
