Members of St. Mary Out Liberty Community Council have heard that solving surface water issues at Nyth Gwennol is likely to involve the removal of the existing carriageway surface so it can be replaced by a new surface.

In a report from local county councillor Jon Preston that has gone before the council, it was explained that following a community led approach, Pembrokeshire County Council arranged for the road at Nyth Gwennol to be jointly investigated by officers from the Highway Asset Management and Street Care teams, with an inspection carried out on October 2.

“Approximately 100 square metres of carriageway at eight separate locations have been identified as having some degree of subsidence,” said Clr. Preston.

“This is also evident around the foul and surface water sewers and around the manholes.

“Dwr Cymru have been informed and will be carrying out a CCTV inspection.

“Following the outcome of the surveys, the minimum remedial works required are likely to involve removal of the existing carriageway surface, followed by the laying of a new surface.

“Some footway reconstruction and concrete kerb realignment will also be required.

“At present it is difficult to know when this work will be carried out, as much of it depends on the CCTV surveys. However, I would hope to see some progress early in the new year,” added Clr. Preston.
