Bridgend County Borough Council has intervened to help lessen traffic disruption in Tondu in relation to Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water works to install a new water main.

The works are taking place at the Maesteg Road (A4063) traffic lights junction in Tondu and queue lengths have been reduced following a review of the temporary traffic management system.

Due to the nature of the works, it is impossible to avoid clashing with peak times, but all efforts are being made to keep any unavoidable disruption to a minimum.

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water are also looking to accelerate the installation by working on weekends.

Council officers have been attending at peak times to monitor the operation, and the traffic management contractor employed by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, undertakes manual control to assist with managing the traffic flow.

The council would like to thank residents and motorists for their patience and understanding at this time.
