Improvement works to Bridgend’s local highway network

A major package of works is planned by Bridgend County Borough Council between now and March 2021. Funding for the works is being provided by both Welsh Government and from Bridgend Council. The local authority will carry out resurfacing work, repairs and improvement works across its local highway network investing around £2.25m.

The roads have been identified through condition surveys, testing for skid-resistance and assessments conducted by highways inspectors as well as issues raised by the public and local councillors.

Streets where pavements will be improved include, Ton Glas in Bryntirion, Pyle Inn Way, the High Street at Laleston, Protheroe Avenue in Penyfai, and Cae Odin at Brackla. Additional asphalt resurfacing work will take place at Bradfield Road in Cefn Glas.

Some of the other roads where works are being carried out or which have been identified for resurfacing and other improvement works include:

• A4063 Penyfai between Glanrhyd and Bridgend Road
• A473 Coychurch
• Cefn Glas Road in Penyfai
• B4282 Bridgend Road
• Anglesey Way in Porthcawl
• Bryn Road in Coychurch
• Cae Wallis Street in Bridgend
• Llangewydd Road between Cefn Cribwr & Laleston
• Heol Tegfryn in Pyle
• Litchard Park in Pendre
• B4283 Curwen Terrace to Porthcawl Road in North Cornelly
• Danygraig Avenue at Newton in Porthcawl

Mr Jones said “I am pleased to see this level of investment in the county’s local road network. The state of the pavements and some of the roads are often raised with me in advice surgeries with people asking when action will be taken for repairs. Once these works are completed I know that this will bring much needed improvements for my constituents moving around the county borough.”
