MEMBERS of Neyland Town Council have welcomed news that work has started to improve parking in Brunel Avenue.
Pembrokeshire County Council has agreed to build asphalt driveways to three properties in the street, and create a parking bay in the existing grass verge.
New brick boundary walls will also replace existing wooden fencing around seven houses in the street.
Mayor of Neyland Cllr Maureen Molyneux said she was thrilled that work had begun.
“It will definitely help because it will alleviate a lot of the problems and make it a lot more convenient for local people to park,” she said.
She added “The brick walls will really smarten the area up too.”
Local councillor Simon Hancock also welcomed the news.
He said the improvements represented a "welcome investment".
'"There was congestion in the avenue and obviously any measures which improve traffic flow will be good for everyone."
The work is being carried out by Narberth based contractor GJS Utilities on behalf of Pembrokeshire County Council.
The project is part of the county council’s Estate Improvement and Estate Parking programmes, which are designed to improve county council-owned estates and increase the parking provision for tenants.
