A TEMPORARY shuttle bus service has been put on by Carmarthenshire County Council to support residents of Llansadwrn and Llanwrda during the continued closure of a section of the A40.
A four-mile stretch of the trunk road between Llandovery and Llanwrda has been closed for a number of days following the opening of a sink hole over a damaged water culvert.
The South Wales Trunk Road Agent is working to repair the road and re-open it, but in the meantime diversions are in place which have affected the Carmarthen-Llandovery bus service.
The temporary shuttle bus will run Monday through until Saturday until the road re-opens, calling at all recognised bus stops along the route.
Cllr Hazel Evans, executive board member for environment, said: “The Welsh Government has advised us that repairs will be carried out this week which we hope will mean the road can re-open soon.
“However, there are residents in these villages who rely on bus services so we are pleased to lay on a temporary shuttle bus to help them travel to Carmarthen and Llandovery.”
