A CARDIGAN councillor has expressed her delight after highways chiefs gave the green light to plans to ‘flower bomb’ the town’s bypass.

Cllr Elaine Evans had been lobbying the South Wales Trunk Road Agency to consider the planting of wildflower ‘seed bombs’ along the A487 trunk road.

“I have now had confirmation that they intend to plant wildflower seeds along the Cardigan Bypass very soon,” she told the Tivy-Side. “I am so pleased to receive this news.

“It will be great for local wildlife, and this stretch of road will look absolutely stunning when in flower.

“This is good news for our community and it is so encouraging to see agencies like SWTRA taking the wild flowering of our roadside verges seriously.

“Vehicle and pedestrian visibility will, of course, be considered at the junctions during the grass-cutting season.”

Back in the 1990s, Dai Davies, the-then mayor of Cardigan, oversaw the planting of hundreds of daffodil bulbs along the bypass.
