Since the resurfacing works on the A483 started last month, I have received lots of correspondence about the on-going issues. Concerns have included speeding cars and anti-social driving in surrounding villages as motorists try to avoid roadworks.
As a result, I contacted the Welsh Government about this on a number of occasions to raise constituents' concerns. You can read my initial letter to the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agency below. I was pleased to receive a response to this letter from the Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters MS, who has responsibility for this in which Mr Waters offered a virtual meeting to discuss concerns.
Disappointingly, however, I have yet to receive further information about this meeting, as promised. I will keep pushing for a meeting, as I think it is important that residents' concerns are raised directly with the Welsh Government.
Earlier this year, I also wrote to the Welsh Government again to outline my concerns about noise and visual pollution from the A483. According to residents, pollution from the road has increased considerably following the cutting down of roadside trees. I have therefore called on the Welsh Government to work with residents to address these concerns. So far, I have not heard anything from Ministers and when I do manage to meet with the Minister, I will make sure to raise this issue too.
