  • "Why now? For the last 40 years heavy lorries (aka road tankers) have travelled through Milford or taken this route to get to the refineries and then suddenly funding appears. For sure £8M passing into the local economy via the pay packets of the local workforce will be welcome but its just for a year. Where are the long term investments in our county? Why isn't PCC working to develop the old mine depot buildings as a Ocean Energy Research Facility (like the £9M one just opened in Edinburgh) and watersports centre? That could support many more jobs and businesses than this new 2 mile stretch of tarmac."

Work has started on the long-awaiting Bulford Road improvement scheme in Johnston.

The £8 million project – jointly funded by Pembrokeshire County Council and the Welsh Government (WEFO) - upgrades the busy single-track link road between Johnston and Tiers Cross.

It will also reduce the number of heavy lorries driving through Milford town centre.

The first sod was ceremoniously cut on Friday (6th June) by the County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transportation, Councillor Rob Lewis.

He said the upgrade was important for the health of the local economy.

The contractor is Alun Griffiths Limited and work will last around 12 months.
