Families who enjoy spending their holidays on the idyllic south Pembrokeshire coast are in for a far easier and safer drive as the Transport Minster Edwina Hart has opened the £68 million bypass on the A477. The new bypass road between St Clears and Red Roses is thought to make a huge difference for those travelling to south Pembrokeshire and ferry traffic.

The new five-mile section has been warmly received by both locals and those who enjoy visiting the aforementioned part of Wales as it is thought to alleviate a disreputable transport bottleneck. While family Tenby cottage holidays are immensely popular every summer, the route to the renowned holiday hotspot has been known to be less than desirable.

The new road has been built to improve both safety and journey times, a project that was first identified in the early 1990s, with construction starting in 2012 according to this article, meaning that the road’s opening has come as a very welcome and long-anticipated addition to Welsh roads.
