End of the road in sight for Harbour Way development
Motorists are being advised of ongoing works and traffic
management operations on the new Harbour Way link road ahead of its
official opening in mid-October.
Following handover of the carriageway from contractors Costain
to Neath Port Talbot Council, all sections of the road are now
accessible; however road users are advised to proceed carefully as
work continues on the remaining phase of the £107 million ERDF and
Welsh Government-funded project.
Parts of the road will be restricted to one lane in both
directions due to the traffic management scheme in operation to
facilitate the final stage of works.
The latest phase has seen the TATA main access at Cefn Gwrgan
road close, with M4 traffic now able to access Harbour Way directly
from the Tyn-y-Caeau roundabout on the A48. This means that
significant numbers of industrial vehicles will no longer need to
enter residential areas of Margam.
The largest transport project in Wales, the finished route will
provide an important regional link to Port Talbot docks and improve
access to development sites within the Council's Harbourside
The official opening of the road is scheduled for October
following completion of all associated works.
Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council, Cllr Ali Thomas said: "The
Harbour Way project is a major infrastructure development that,
once completed, will bring substantial economic benefits to the
"Collaborative working between Neath Port Talbot Council and
Costain has meant that the project is set to finish on programme
later this autumn."
"Road users are thanked for their cooperation whilst this final
phase of work is completed."
