A484 closed as lorry slips its load

The A484 was temporarily closed today at Cynwyl Elfed after a lorry carrying timber slipped its load.

The incident happened at approximately 3.30pm.

Police attended the incident closing the road from the Bronwydd side of Cynwyl Elfed to the junction for Hermon and Cwm Duad.

The road was reopened when the load had been made safe.

It is the second road accident in a fortnight. A trailer came off its tow hitch and careered into a local house damaging the front porch and doorway.

Residents have been calling for traffic calming measures  for a number of years and attempts have been made to secure land for off road parking but to no avail. The road through the village is also deteriorating with road markings almost non existent. Some residents park on the roadside at present with others using the Community Hall car park.

Despite the Welsh Government’s policy to get people out of cars and onto bikes, public transport or walking the traffic is getting heavier and heavier creating high risk for pedestrians and cyclists in the area.
