    That would make sense as no one has given a darn about even huger tankers going down the road for decades and decades
    I think he works at the refinery across the water, the old Texaco refinery, but I get your point. If this road was such an issue then why has it not been done in the last 40 years since there has been a refinery on the Murco site. I don't see how this road is going to make much difference to the journey and I don't see what the big problem is of them driving through the main road that runs through Milford, it's big enough, so why not.

    This £8 Million could be spent on 101 other schemes that would deliver real tangible benefits to the people rather than build a massive road that looks like it is going to be redundant before it has even been built. Unfortunately the future of refining at Murco is not looking rosy, especially as apparently the site has been losing money for the last few years and also that there is a over-supply of refining facilities in the UK. The site has been on the market for a few years with no takers and that says to me that investors do not see it as viable.

    On another point it looks like a bit of a plum job being a councillor, spend a large part of the day out on a jolly photo shoot whilst you spend the rest of the day agreeing with whatever Jamie "And The Magic Torch" Adams and the rest of the IP Boys Club want you to agree with, and as a bonus you get paid a nice big wodge for not doing a lot really, sounds brilliant, who wouldn't want to be a councillor ;-)"

Work begins on £8m Bulford Road upgrades

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.
