A48 reopens between Carmarthen and Nantycaws after six weeks

A48 in Carmarthenshire

The eastbound carriageway of the A48 in Carmarthenshire has re-opened after the completion of works.

The carriageway was closed for almost six weeks between Carmarthen and Nantycaws amid concerns it would cause "chaos".

Ch Insp Peter Roderick, of Dyfed-Powys Police, said it would be "a relief to all motorists and people living locally on the diversion route who have endured weeks of disruption and inconvenience".

He thanked people for their patience.

A command room was set up at police headquarters to safely oversee the opening of the carriageway on Sunday night and no incidents were reported in the operation.

The works were carried out to repair a defect in a stretch of pipeline which runs under the road from Pembroke refinery.
