Restoration work continues on retaining wall at Gelli Onn in Llanelli
Restoration work of the western retaining wall of Gelli Onn in Llanelli, costing £70,000, is nearing completion.
Carmarthenshire council transport division have source the funding to repair the collapsing bank of earth and stone slabs which had led to the closure of the footway on one side of the busy carriageway.
Vice president of Llanelli Chamber of Trade and Commerce Gilmore Jones said:”It is tremendous to see this work being carried out. Having barriers up on one of Llanelli’s main thoroughfares has not been welcoming for visitors.”
County executive board member for transport services Cllr Hazel Evans said:” The transport team are to be applauded for finding the money in these difficult times to carry out this work.”
The work allows for planting to give a more decorative vista for this main traffic artery into Llanelli.
The work replaces a crumbling slabbed area installed by the former Llanelli Borough Council more than 30 years ago.
