Cllr David A Bithell Lead Member Environment and Transport said: “Work continues to be assessed at Newbridge, however the road conditions are not getting better and some more cracks in the infrastructure have appeared. We continue to work with our specialist geotechnical consultants to assess the damage and come up with solutions.
“We continue to liaise with Welsh Government and have had meaningful discussions with officers over what is required. We have not yet received any assurances on funding, and we as a council continue to lobby ministers and local politicians to secure funding.
“In the meantime the diversions remain in place and unfortunately we are unable to re-open part of the road for one way traffic at this time. This we know is causing significant inconvenience to local people and surrounding communities.”
