Road resurfacing programme aims to help city on the move

Ten roads in Swansea are set to be part of a series of resurfacing projects in the coming fortnight.

Road Resurfacing

Roads in Morriston, Townhill, Fforestfach and Birchgrove are all set for work to take place in a series of small-scale resurfacing, mostly lasting one day each.

The programme, which is subject to suitable weather conditions, kicked-off over the weekend on Kingsway, Fforestfach.

The schemes are all part of the council's highways team's efforts to keep the city on the move by carrying out work while roads are generally quieter due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment Enhancement and Infrastructure Management, said: "This programme of resurfacing will benefit motorists in communities across the city and the work is being done now because we want to minimise inconvenience as much as possible.

Among those listed for the work are Gors Avenue and Townhill Road in Townhill, Trewyddfa Road in Morriston, Heol Las in Birchgrove and northbound section of Dyfatty Street in the city centre. Where necessary, diversions are being put in place.

Cllr Thomas said: "Like other council services, some of the work we're able to do is restricted or the way we do it has had to change in order to comply with social distancing rules.

"The most important thing is that where highways work has to be done, it's completed in a way that keeps our staff safe and residents safe as well."
