Key transport project makes good progress

Today saw the construction of the Port Talbot Peripheral Distributor move on a stage further when a 500 tonne crane was used to lift eight 15 tonne beams across the River Afan.

A reinforced concrete bridge deck will then be cast on top of the beams to carry the new dual carriageway across the River Afan.

This particular phase of the PDR is on schedule and is expected to be finished by the end of the year. It is one part of a major road building programme that will transform traffic flow in Aberavon and Port Talbot and will run until 2011 at a cost of £110 million.
