NEW traffic lights in Sandy Road, Llanelli, are undergoing a period of adaption over the next few weeks to improve the flow of vehicles.

Specialist traffic engineers are monitoring traffic movements about the traffic lights that became operation this week at the junctions of Sandy Road with Maesycoed.

The works were required as part of the planning consent for the new Stradey housing and retail development to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and traffic entering the A484 from Maesycoed.

Since the signals have been operational there have been delays in traffic movements. The new lights will adapt to traffic movements over a period of time.

County executive member for transport services, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “The authority is mindful of the level of public concern regarding the delays and has arranged for specialist traffic engineers to investigate the function of the lights to try and minimise the disruption for the public.”

County executive board member for transport Cllr Hazel Evans said: “As with all road safety measures of this kind on busy roads there has to be a period of study to assist light timing change adaptions to understand and improve traffic flow.”
