Have your say: Road state is 'shocking'
IN a previous Swansea edition of the Evening Post it was reported that quite a number of roads in the Swansea area had been fixed.
At the bottom of the article it asked: "How's your road?"
Tyn-yr-Heol Road in Bryncoch is in a shocking state, wherever you look there are deep potholes. This is due, in my opinion, to the road being used as a thoroughfare for traffic of every description.
Tractors, low-beds, cement mixers, articulated lorries carrying huge deliveries of bricks, removal vans, buses — other than local transport — the list is endless.
I think a lot of this traffic uses the route through Bryncoch to avoid the congestion that occurs at the bottle neck through Dwr-y-Ffelin/Neath Abbey and Tesco roundabout.
Tyn-yr-Heol Road is a residential area. Unfortunately there is no parking restriction so the parking for residents is on either side of the street and is often in short supply.
You can imagine, therefore, how infuriating, not to mention dangerous, it is to have all this excess traffic using the road and consequently ruining the road surface.
