MTCBC’s Environmental Health officers, South Wales Trunk Road Agency (SWTRA) representatives and ward councillors for Penydarren and Dowlais met via Microsoft Teams last week to discuss concerns raised by residents in relation to SWTRA’s Goat Mill Road Depot (Salt Barn).
The site is currently being used by sub-contractors as a storage and welfare compound throughout the nights, while work is carried out on the A470.
At the meeting SWTRA put forward an overview of the project and the long term benefits it will bring to the local area, as well as a noise mitigation strategy that they plan to implement going forward to reduce noise to an absolute minimum.
SWTRA will be doing a letter drop to residents in the coming weeks to give them an overview of the project and direct contact details for community liaison officers associated with the project.
Our Environmental Health officers and ward councillors will keep in regular contact with SWTRA and another meeting is planned for next month to review the noise mitigation strategy and discuss any concerns.
