Swansea Council has completed the improvements to a section of Fabian Way as part of its ongoing highway maintenance programme.

The works have led to a new road surface on the outbound carriageway between the Sidings Bridge and the park and ride site.

Stuart Davies, Head of Highways and Transportation, said: "Fabian Way is one of our busiest roads and is used every day by thousands of vehicles.

"Day to day we can deal with individual defects using our pothole repair scheme, but busier roads often need a more permanent type of repair so it makes sense to provide a new road surface for this section of Fabian Way."

The improvement works follow on from similar work completed in Uplands where Uplands Crescent has had 400m of new road.

£4.5 million has been pledged as part of the Council's 2017/18 budget to be spent on highway improvements such as road resurfacing schemes and will also go towards replacing pavements, maintaining bridges and street lighting. Further work will include car park resurfacing, cycleway improvements improving coastal defences.

Mr Davies, added: "The investment we have agreed for this year will enable us to carry out improvements across our highway network and target some of the poorest sections of road.

"It's essential we carry out these improvements and extend the life of these well used roads for everyone using them."

The Council has also reported the completion of more than 3,000 pothole repairs as part of its 48hr repair scheme which was launched in the summer of 2016.
