What pressure has the leader of Plaid Cymru in RCT placed on the Labour administration

Stopping at the temporary traffic lights on the A4059 in Mountain Ash I observed  group of people looking towards the proposed Southern Cross Valley link road, perhaps they were deliberating a start and completion date or are they keeping that announcement closer to the May 4.  

Below taken from a Plaid Cymru Group press release 

Cynon Valley Councillor Pauline Jarman, Leader of the Plaid Cymru Group in RCT commented:

“Because of the relentless pressure from Plaid Cymru Councillors Cynon Valley and other parts of the County has benefitted from significant investment in highways like the Southern Cross Valley link in Mountain Ash as well as free and reduced town centre car parking arrangements. We have our finger on the pulse of public opinion and have a strong record of effectively holding the Council to account.”

 

AberdareOnline would ask the question what pressure has the leader of Plaid Cymru in RCT placed on the Labour administration to get the Southern Cross Valley link in Mountain Ash constructed?

 

The question is when Plaid was running RCTC they did nothing to improve traffic flows through Mountain Ash why?

 

At the moment the Labour controlled RCT Council have been working on the A4059, It would seem RCT Council like wasting ratepayer’s money, just a few years ago they altered the road junction at Troed-Y-Rhiw Road Mountain Ash making no provision for north bound traffic to turn right into Troed-Y-Rhiw Road.

What was constructed at the junction a few years ago has been ripped out and the traffic junction is being altered again and RCT ratepayers having to pay again for something that should have been considered in the first place. RCT Council pay large amounts of ratepayer’s money to organisations and consultants, who specialise in highway strategy, do you consider RCT ratepayer’s getting value for money?
