Stryt Pentre, Llwynmawr

There are no salt piles between Pentre Garth and the bottom of Stryt Pentre in Llwynmawr. There were but have probably washed away.

No

Customer service request received and works ticket raised and issued to my operatives - Site visited yesterday with my operative and salt box at the lower end of the hill full and the one at the top more than 3/4 full.  Refilled salt heap by a property called Plas Pentre.  Unable to consider additional heaps due to the steepness of the verges in places and the available places being near to the existing salt boxes or on private land.

Llwynmawr

Complaint about gritting in Llwynmawr at 3.00 a.m. Could this possibly be carried out a few hours later?

No

Pre-salting times of the gritting routes are determined by the weather forecast, if it is anticipated that road surface temperatures are to fall below zero at a certain time then the action will usually be planned for 3 hours prior to the event.  This is to ensure that the treated sections reach a saline state and that the treatment is effective.

Pennant Farm road

Many potholes in road between Pen Y Bryn and Pennant Farm (last corner before Pennant)

No

Length of highway recently inspected as part of cyclic inspection schedule and active defect notices for temporary pothole repair works, active defect notice for carriageway resurfacing and works will be considered accordingly.  Pothole repairs are taking longer than first anticipated to complete due to the high level of demand and scarce available resources, works are also being programmed in line with a highway network hierarchy system.
