Newgale road re-opens after flood chaos

Western Telegraph: Newgale road expected to re-open on Friday evening Newgale road expected to re-open on Friday evening

Pembrokeshire County Council has tweeted to say that the A487 through Newgale has now re-opened.

The road has been closed since last Thursday (January 2) after stormy seas pushed the pebble sea wall back over the road and flooded large parts of the village.

Work had been going on since Tuesday to clear the road, as seen in this picture by SkyCamWales.

The county council said the A487 has re-opened but the side road to Nolton is likely to remain closed over the weekend.

Surely it would be better to build a proper solid wall than this loose pebble dyke. I travel this road frequently and there are often large stones in the road either forced down by weather condition or kicked down by holiday makers. These stones are dangerous to traffic and can do expensive damage to vehicles. A wall would cost more initially but would be much easier to maintain and certainly lessen the chances of flooding
