A477 St Clears to Red Roses Improvement 19 November 2014

The aims of the scheme are to improve safety, provide better overtaking opportunities, and reduce journey times on a sub-standard section of the A477 in south-west Wales.

The improvement consists of a new offline single carriageway road, 8.7 km in length, running from the A477/A40 St Clears roundabout and then bypassing Llanddowror and Red Roses to the north before re-joining the existing A477 at Llanteg. Sections of 2+1 will be provided to improve opportunities for overtaking.

The preferred route was announced in October 2006 and then amended follow a review in 2008/09.
