Two major developments are underway in South Wales as part of the Regional Transport Plan, which will see the Neath Port Talbot area transformed. Both projects will have most of the required funding from the Welsh Government.
The first of the two projects is a bridge that will link Baglan Energy Park from both sides. This £7.3m structure is on track to be completed in March next year and will cross the railway lines that currently separate Central Avenue and Brunel Way, as well as the internal linking road to the Baglan Power Station.
The composite concrete and the bridge’s steel decks have already been put into place, but construction of the bridge’s parapet walls will continue throughout the Christmas period and on into New Year. The aim of this bridge project is to implement better transportation links for those who work in key employment sites, such as the Energy Park.
The second development will see a £13.4m leisure centre built on the Aberavon Seafront, with construction expected to finish by the end of 2015. The brick and block work is already in progress, meaning that the ground and first floors are now ready for the concrete flooring to be poured, and timber roof beams are being put into place.
Aberavon’s new beachfront leisure centre, expected to be completed in 2015, will boast a ‘wave design’ roof and state-of-the-art features, such as a 25m pool that comes with a moveable floor, as well as a gym and spin room.
