Total madness in Mountain Ash
Posted by Lewis on the 28th February 2014
Once again no joined up thinking at Rhondda Cynon Council and Welsh Water as Welsh Water is set to invest £375,000 to upgrade the network in the town to maintain a “high-quality, reliable supply of tap water” to community members.
Why was this major project the construction of a new water main thought about when the town had the major regeneration scheme?
Trade suffered in the town and it will suffer again, the local councillor is supposed to be in charge of highways it doesn’t look if he is helping his constituents has he no forward thinking?
The town’s iconic bridge, which is the main gateway on to Oxford Street and Commercial Street, will be out of bounds for six days during the Easter break between 4am on Saturday, April 12, and 6am on Friday, April 18.
So the alternative is either travel to Aberaman or Abercynon on the B2475 as all who use this road it is a bottleneck at peak times.
I know there is no logic at RCTC but has anyone thought of making the journey a little easer? Bronallt Terrace in Abercwmboi is serviced with satisfactory rear lanes this Street is a bottleneck when the A4059 is closed (or in this case Mount Bridge) with additional traffic using the B2475 also John Street Abercwmboi also has rear access on one side for parking vehicles.
The roads through Mountain Ash Town and surrounding streets will look like a patchwork quilt and edges will breakup during bad weather another bill for the ratepayer.
No one cares what happens in the valleys of South Wales.
Just keep paying more council tax and reduced services from this Labour controlled council
Keep voting Labour you know it makes sense.
