A public exhibition will take place on Friday (May 2nd 2014) to highlight the extensive work being carried out by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council to alleviate flooding and improve the highways in Aberaman.
Last September it was announced that £2.5M of funding would be available for flood alleviation works throughout the County Borough, thanks to the Council, European Regional Development Fund and the Welsh Government.
As a result, four key areas are scheduled to see much needed improvements that will address their long standing flooding problems including Nant Gwawr in Aberaman.
The forthcoming exhibition will not only highlight the work at Nant Gwawr but also the Council’s investment proposal in highway improvements along Cardiff Road between Abergwawr Street and Curre Street to improve the flow of traffic.
Councillor Andrew Morgan, Cabinet Member for Frontline Services, added: “Areas of Rhondda Cynon Taf have been suffering from flooding for many years and our proposals at Nant Gwawr will hopefully eradicate some of the risk of this occurring again.
“As a Council we are continuing to do all we can to prepare ourselves for the increasing problem of flooding and this project demonstrates our commitment to ensure that we protect our residents as far as we possibly can.
“The public exhibition will not only allow residents to view the proposals for flood alleviation, but also the highway investment programme which will be most welcomed in some of the key road networks throughout the village.”
Residents are invited to view the proposals for both schemes on Friday May 2nd 2014 between 11am and 8pm at Apostolic Church Hall, Club Street, Aberaman. Council officers will be present to answer any questions related to the schemes.
