Work began to clear a major road in west Wales yesterday after storms washed hundreds of tonnes of stone from the seawall onto the highway.
Contractor GD Harries and Son began work to clear the A487 at Newgale in Pembrokeshire, which has been closed since the night of 2 January. The road is likely to reopen at the end of this week as long as the weather does not deteriorate.
Elsewhere in Pembrokeshire, part of the seafront road at Amroth was washed away when a 40 m stretch of the seawall was breached by high winds and huge waves on the night of 2 January.
A spokesman for Pembrokeshire County Council said repair work on the road had not yet begun and would take considerable time to complete. A possible option is to run the road as a single carriageway while the work is carried out.
