Station Road reopened on Saturday 14 September following a three-month closure due to maintenance work being carried out on Mynydd underbridge.
The work has increased the lifespan of the bridge.
Engineers and contractors have successfully improved the stability, drainage and masonry features of the underbridge. A
large metal redundant span was removed which will significantly reduce maintenance upkeep of the bridge
