Llanfair road set for another long disruption

Created on 03/05/2022 @ 14:10

Just weeks after finally reopening following urgent repairs two a culvert, the road to and from Llanfair Caereinion is set to undergo more work to replace ageing water pipes.

Hafren Dyfrdwy has today started a £120,000 job to replace nearly four miles of water pipes, and says that it could take until the New Year to be completed.

Work started with Hafren Dyfrdwy teams beginning work on private property before moving onto the carriageway on September 12, 2022, working from the A458 near Cyfronydd at the junction of B4392, towards A458 near Castle Caereinion.

The firm said it will be short term pain for long-term gain, providing Welshpool customers with improved water quality and reliability for years to come, but the expected road works will be a headache for road users who have already endured months of diversions on the road this year.

Janine Billington from Hafren Dyfrdwy, said: “Customers in Welshpool deserve a modern water supply that they can rely on. That’s why we’re making this investment to prevent future leaks and bursts.

“We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise any disruption while we’re working in the area. We’d like to thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding as we get this essential work done as quickly and as safely as possible.”

The firm stated that to keep engineers and other road users safe, appropriate traffic management will be in place throughout the duration of the project.

For most of this year, motorists were taken on a long diversion via Meifod when the road was closed to fix a culvert on the Golfa Bank. It reopened just in time for the Easter rush.
