Night-time working on West Way from Monday November 14

Night-time working is planned for West Way this week as part of a major highway improvement scheme that's nearing completion.

West Way

Weather depending, the night-time working will take place from Monday November 14 to Thursday November 17. 

The work is being carried out at night to minimise the impact on traffic flows during peak, day-time hours.

Once these night-time works are finished, all remaining works forming part of the project will be also carried out during off-peak hours to minimise disruption to motorists.

The West Way scheme will generate better pedestrian links between Sandfields and the city centre, enhance the look of the area and improve traffic flows. A new road layout has also been introduced close to the City Bus Station to help bus movements.

Works on the road are likely to be finished during November.

Swansea Council is behind the works, which are being funded by the Welsh Government's Vibrant and Viable Places Swansea City Centre Regeneration programme that was awarded in June, 2014.

Vibrant and Viable Places (VVP) is a three-year programme (2014-2017) through which Swansea Council has been awarded more than £9 million to target key regeneration projects in the city centre. 

A Swansea Council spokesperson said: "This project, which will benefit motorists and pedestrians, is now reaching completion, so we'd like to thank the local community and motorists for their patience throughout the works so far.

"Some night-time working is needed from Monday to Thursday next week, but we'll again do all we can to minimise disruption. These works are being carried out at night at to minimise the impact on traffic flows during peak, day-time hours.

"Nearby residents and businesses have been informed as we head towards the last stages of a scheme that will also considerably improve West Way's appearance, thanks to landscaping works that include the introduction of more greenery."
