Repairs to be carried out to Bonymaen Street, as Swansea Council considers proposals for further street improvements.
REPAIRS are to be carried out to a Bonymaen road following complaints about potholes — as Swansea Council prepares to consider proposals for wider street improvements.
Officers from Swansea Council's highways department inspected the surface of the road, in Chepstow Place, on Thursday after being contacted by residents who had complained about the size of the gaps which had opened.
One Chepstow Place resident, Graham Lewis, said the holes had become so big in recent months that residents feared they were causing damage to their vehicles.
The Liberty Stadium worker said: "It is a narrow road and people park their cars along one side of it. It means that if there is traffic coming the other way you are forced to hit the holes every time.

"We have been trying to get something done about it since November.
"There are four big holes close to each other in a short distance — and the holes are getting bigger and bigger.
"I have been trying to get through to the highways department, and another neighbour has complained at least three times."
The work comes as Swansea Council is set to consider proposals for investment to improve roads and footpaths in the city's target areas, which are places the council has decided to focus on, as well as upgrades on bridges and street lighting.
The council has already started replacing lights cut down because they were deemed unsafe, and is aiming to replace thousands of street lights.
The first year of the programme was agreed early last year, and the authority's cabinet is being asked to agree how to spend the remaining funds.
Member are due to meet on Monday to consider the proposals.
A Swansea Council spokesman said: "We have inspected the road after being notified of the pothole.
"Emergency repairs are planned as part of our ongoing highway maintenance programme."
