Road repair experts head for west of city

An expert road repair team is visiting the west of the city over the next month.

Swansea Council's PATCH project (Priority Action for Community Highways) spends an intensive week in each part of the city between mid-April and the end of December every year to fill in potholes and attend to other road defects.

The team is in Upper Loughor this week. They'll also be visiting Kingsbridge, Gowerton, Penclawdd, Pontarddulais and Killay by the end of October.

The PATCH project is in addition to other Swansea Council road maintenance teams who are out and about every day to help keep the city moving. Their combined work means close to 4,500 potholes and other road defects have been attended to so far in 2015.
