WELSH OFFICE BYPASS SCHEME WRONG, SAYS DYFED CC

Dyfed CC has accused the Welsh Office of getting its plans wrong over a town's bypass scheme which has been on the drawing board for 25 years, reports the Western Mail (p5).

Carmarthen's eastern bypass was first investigated in 1970 and a route was agreed after public consultations five years later.

But Dyfed CC county planning officer David Bown and engineer Hywel Davies say the draft order for the scheme published last month does not agree with the approved scheme, fails to tackle possible flooding problems and does not offer the best solution.

A special joint meeting of the council's highways and planning committees on Thursday will be urged not to lodge a formal objection which could cause further delays to a scheme considered urgent because of worsening traffic congestion.
