A series of engagement events are being held to discuss road safety priorities along the A485, which connects Carmarthen to Llanybydder and Cwmman in the north of Carmarthenshire.

The events are funded by a Welsh Government Road Safety Grant.

People will be able to hear about current safety priorities along the route and on-going road safety activities in the area, as well as having the opportunity to raise awareness of local road safety issues and ask questions.

Community road safety groups and networks in the area will also be showcased.

The events will be held at:

  • January 14, 4.30pm and 7.30pm - Ystafell Gymunedol Ysgol Peniel School Community Room
  • January 28, 4.30pm and 7.30pm - Cartref Ymddeol Cwm Aur Retirement Home, Llanybydder
  • January 31, 4.30pm and 7.30pm - Neuadd Ysgol Gymunedol Ysgol Carreg Hirfaen Community School Hall

Cllr Hazel Evans, Executive Board Member for Environment, said: “The A485 is a busy and well-used road and it’s important that people who use it often, or live along its route, are given an opportunity to have their say about safety priorities. We hope that the events will be well attended.”
