Major Investment in Blaenau Gwent Highways Planned

Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council has approved a £2 million investment in its highways network.

The Works to commence in 2018 will be aimed primarily at improving the condition of residential roads and compliments previous works focused around strategic A & B highways throughout the County Borough.

Investments in strategic infrastructure, such as highways, will not only improve the quality of these roads for every day users in the community but also aid in enhancing opportunities for economic development, new inward investment and create a positive perception of visitors to or passing through the area.

Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Environment Cllr Garth Collier said:

‘We have listened to what the public have had to say regarding the condition of residential roads in Blaenau Gwent. Creating an enhanced environment with infrastructure that benefits not only our local communities but also businesses & visitors to Blaenau Gwent is a key priority for the Authority and fully aligns with the Authorities’ Well Being Objectives.’
