Business as usual as work starts at Llanelli Market
Work has started on investment of almost £1million in Llanelli Market and its precincts.
The next phase of the work includes improvements to the fire alarm, ventilation system and mains electrics and public wifi within the market hall and Stepney and Cowell precincts.
The market and precincts remain open and business continues as usual as the improvement work is done out of hours by local contractors Lloyd and Gravell.
Work involving scaffolding in both market precincts is expected to take three weeks.
Llanelli Market and precincts are owned and managed by Carmarthenshire County Council.
Executive board member for resources, Cllr David Jenkins, said: “Shoppers can be reassured that the market is open and businesses are trading as usual during this time.
“Understandably there will be some disruption to shoppers and traders, but this will be kept to a minimum as contractors undertake the work outside of opening hours.”
This investment will secure the long term future for the market, which provides a large retail environment within the town.
It will also safeguard around 73 individual businesses and 210 jobs.
It is hoped that the public wifi will be installed in the next month.
Llanelli Indoor Market is open Monday to Saturday.
