Assembly Member David Rees visits Harbour Way
Newly elected Assembly Member David Rees has been invited to view progress being made on the £107million Harbour Way link road in Port Talbot.
Contractors Costain, who are building the road for Neath Port Talbot Council, hosted a visit last week when Mr Rees and the Council’s Corporate Director for Environment, John Flower, were taken on a tour of the road to see how it is taking shape.
Both were updated with the latest information by Costain’s Managing Director, Darren James and Project Managers John Skentelbery and Rhys Griffith.
David Rees said, “I am extremely impressed with how quickly the area was being transformed from an industrial wasteland into an area of high activity, stretching from Green Park in Aberavon to the TATA sports fields in Margam.
“Travelling its route gives you an insight into the obvious potential for the area when completed. Costain has been working with the community to ensure that they continue to be fully consulted during its development. I look forward to working with the local authority to realise the potential the dockland provides.”
John Flower, Director of Environment Neath Port Talbot Council, added, “This was the first chance for the team to meet David Rees and appraise him of the good progress on the job. We also took the time to outline regeneration opportunities associated with Harbour Way and the scheme’s close links to Tata. I very much appreciate Mr Rees finding time to visit the project.”
Darren James, Managing Director for Costain, said, “It was a pleasure to meet with David Rees and introduce him fully to the Harbour Way project. I would like to thank him for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with myself and the team. We all look forward to welcoming him back to site soon.”
