Cllr Davies added: “Anytime we carry works like these out, some disruption is inevitable – but we'll be doing everything we can to keep this to an absolute minimum.

"This includes maintaining access for emergency vehicles during our working hours and carrying the works out as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“We also encourage anyone wanting to report potholes or other faults on our road network via FixMyStreet, either online or on the app.”
