Pontsarn Update: 25 March 2024

Recent bad weather and flooding has unfortunately resulted in the landslip that occurred below the road during the Christmas period to widen and lengthen at Pontsarn.

A site visit has taken place, including an emergency independent inspection, and the council awaits the report to understand the scale of the situation, as the continued erosion threatens the stability and safety of the road.

Despite these challenges, contractors have been working tirelessly. The upper landscape and road has been strengthened and would have been completed on time if it wasn’t for the sheer amount of rainfall over the last few months.

However, there are now concerns on the vulnerability of the road below.

The council is currently in discussions with Welsh Government, contractors and independent assessors who are all working towards the next steps needed to achieve an action plan.

We want to assure residents that safety is paramount. The road will not be reopening as originally planned on 26 April until we can receive the report and assess the safety. We will keep you updated when we know more information over the coming weeks.­
