Bridgend County Borough Council staff worked throughout the night over the weekend to deal with heavy rain and prevent widespread flooding in areas across the county borough.

Highways crews helped to distribute sandbags, cleared drains and gulleys, and removed debris from culverts where needed.

It followed the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning for rainfall.

Due to the sheer volume of rain, Roger’s Lane from Laleston to Cefn Cribbwr, Heronston Lane in Bridgend and the A4064 at Llangeinor were among the roads flooded.

Sandbags were sent to properties at Bridgend Road in Garth, Oaklands Avenue in Bridgend, Heol-Pant-yr-awel, Pantyrawel, Lewistown, Craiglas in Llangeinor and Main Avenue in Brackla industrial estate.

And highways teams helped to clear a number of culverts blocked by debris being swept down from fields and neighbouring land in Heol Faen, Maesteg, Min-y-Nant and Greenacres in Pencoed.

Cllr Stuart Baldwin, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “The clean-up is ongoing today with teams carrying out further investigations to establish the cause of some of the incidents.

“Many thanks to all staff who worked overnight to respond to so many incidents quickly in difficult conditions.”
