Published

on

NEW traffic lights in Sandy Road, Llanelli, are undergoing a period of adaption over the next few weeks to improve the flow of vehicles.

Specialist traffic engineers are monitoring traffic movements about the traffic lights that became operation this week at the junctions of Sandy Road with Maesycoed.

The works were required as part of the planning consent for the new Stradey housing and retail development to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and traffic entering the A484 from Maesycoed.

Since the signals have been operational there have been delays in traffic movements. The new lights will adapt to traffic movements over a period of time.

County executive member for transport services, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “The authority is mindful of the level of public concern regarding the delays and has arranged for specialist traffic engineers to investigate the function of the lights to try and minimise the disruption for the public.”

County executive board member for transport Cllr Hazel Evans said: “As with all road safety measures of this kind on busy roads there has to be a period of study to assist light timing change adaptions to understand and improve traffic flow.”

    No right turn into Maes-y-Coed Road for vehicles travelling from Llanelli would greatly help they could access the area from the Denham Avenue roundabout which they have the right of way to turn right.
    Vehicles would be allowed to turn into Maes-y-Coed Road travelling east from Burry Port as this maneuver does not stop the flow of traffic.

    Can’t find an article about Stradey Park Residents approaching pedestrians walking within the site saying they cannot walk or drive in the site as it is forbidden (private roads)
    Two signs on the railings in front of the Memorial Garden “Vehicles and Pedestrians access to residents only”
    Locals are furious LOOK INTO IT – also site complete 350 homes NO play area for the children ?

Police advise ‘hang up on suspicious callers’

Published

on

A NATIONAL telephone scam, aiming to steal money, has reached residents living within the Dyfed-Powys area.

Paul Callard, of Dyfed-Powys Police’s Financial Crime Team, said: “Action Fraud has today  made us aware three people living in Dyfed-Powys have been contacted by fraudsters claiming to be from BT, in the past four days. While three people have reported, we suspect many more have been targeted.

“Victims receive a telephone call from someone pretending to be from BT who is calling due to a problem with the victim’s internet connection speed. During the call the victim is asked to open their online banking, eBay, Tesco and other accounts. The scammer then tries to gain remote access to the victim’s computer to empty the victim’s bank account.

“BT will never ask for remote access to your computer or access to your online bank account. We urge anyone who receives unsolicited/cold calls from any company hang up immediately. Do not enter into conversation with them, provide them with any personal details or send them any money. You should only phone the company back using a trusted phone number.”

If you have been the victim of fraud, attempted fraud, or cyber crime, or have received a potential scam message or computer virus but no money has been lost or you haven’t responded to it, report it to Action Fraud either online or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Man consumed ‘six treble vodkas’ as he looked after children

Published

on

A CARMARTHENSHIRE man found in public with his two young children after he drank six treble vodkas appeared before magistrates in Llanelli on Thursday (Jan 11)

The man, in his 40s, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two charges of being drunk in charge of a child under the age of seven.

Lisa Jones, prosecuting, requested that the case be adjourned for a pre-sentence report.

She told the court that last September police officers spoke to the man, who had two children with him – one in a pram.

The officers could smell alcohol and he said that he had only had six drinks but was unsteady on his feet.

The defendant went on to say that he had not slept for the past five days, had consumed six treble vodka-and-cokes that day and thought he was ‘tipsy’.

There was a bottle of clear liquid under the pram which was established to be vodka. The man admitted to drinking once a week and said that the children had eaten four hours previously.

Sentencing was adjourned for three weeks to allow the probation services to carry out a full report. The defendant was released on unconditional bail until then.
