SWANSEA Council workmen have been carrying out works on the roundabout at the junction of Samlet Road, Upper Forest Way and Valley Way for the past few weeks causing tailbacks for what apparently was a weeding exercise.
However, the attractive shrubs which were growing at the four junctions of the roundabout have been removed. In place of them have appeared 6ft solid wooden screens which totally block a car driver's view. This will lead to massive traffic build-ups because drivers cannot see if the junction is clear on approach and an increase in accidents.
In this time of austerity officers on a so-called cash-strapped council can surely find more pressing needs.
