CONCERNS have been voiced over the safety of the road that runs by the milk factory in Newcastle Emlyn.

Cllr Cefin Evans said he had been asked to raise the issue at a meeting of the town council, saying he had been made aware of a couple of near head-on crashes on that stretch of the B4333 despite the measures that had been put in place to slow down traffic.

“As you head back into town, you get to where the road narrows quite quickly. There’s a lot going on there as you come around the corner and people are easily distracted,” said Cllr Evans.

“It is very dark round there and perhaps the road markings paint needs touching up.”

Cllr Hazel Evans said: “It has nothing to do with the signs in the area, it is because people do not want to wait. They simply don’t stop or give way. That’s why the speed humps were put there to try to slow people down.”

Cllr Barry Evans agreed and added: “Where the road narrows by the Coopers Arms is not too bad as it is more open but the one by the factory, people just fly straight through it. That has happened to me time and again.”
