THE end could finally be in sight to the on-going sage to remove dangerous trees from the River Teifi at Cardigan bridge.

The issue has been rumbling on for months, with Cardigan Town Council continually asking Ceredigion County Council to sort it out.

The trees were brought down the river during Storm Callum and initial work was done to trim some of the branches – which only served to make the situation worse as the tree stumps were left just below the surface of the water and still a serious hazard to anyone in a boat or canoe.

At last night’s town council meeting (Tuesday, July 3), despite an email from Ceredigion County Council saying the work had been done, that was still not the case.

But by the end of the meeting, reassurances were received that a specialist contractor had been contacted and the work would be carried out as soon as possible.

The county council maintained it was not responsible for this section of the river, but “would undertake the works in order to alleviate local concerns and will be looking to recharge the Crown Estates, the owners, for the works undertaken.”
