Road closed due to dangerous tree
Gower Road between Pen yr Heol Road and Glan yr Afon Road in Sketty has been closed until at least mid-morning today due to a large tree at serious risk of collpasing into the road.
Specialists cannot start work to make the tree safe till the wind has died down Tuesday morning so the road can re-open.
Motorists are being urged to avoid the area and use a different route particularly during Tuesday’s rush hour.
Access to properties only is allowed in the stretch between Pen yr Heol Road and Glan yr Afon Road.
The road was closed and diversions set up via Park Way and Sketty Park Road Monday afternoon after council highways teams were called to the incident. An inspection of the tree showed specialist equipment was needed and work will start on the tree on Tuesday morning.
