After many years at their present site on Fabian Way, the museum will close in December and re-allocate to new premises in the Hafod.

 

The last open day will be on Sunday 29th October 2017 from 10 am - 4 pm.  There will be lots of activities for children and adults with rides to Aberavon and Mumbles in their restored open deck double-decker buses.

 

The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group will be there with their famous jail and their new ARP (Air Raid Precautions) manakin.

The accident happened by the Park and Ride Station at Port Tennant. Police closed the westbound lane early this morning and at 10 am was still closed. Buses from the Swansea University Bay Campus were being diverted via Jersey Marine through Morriston and into Swansea that way. Police have said that a pedestrian has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after the crash. The road has been closed westbound since then to allow for accident investigation work to be carried out. Pictures from the scene showed a stationary truck in the sealed off area. Welsh Ambulance Trust has said that a second person was also taken to hospital.

Trees and structures weakened by 90mph gales at the start of the week could topple when ‘Storm Brian’ hits on Saturday. Unlike Ophelia, which vented much of her fury across Ireland and the southwest, the next storm has the entire country in its sights.

 

Warnings have been ramped up as forecasters watch the progress of a powerful low-pressure system currently churning the Atlantic. The Met Office this morning confirmed the storm will go through an “explosive” development as it passes over ocean waters.

 

It has issued a severe weather warning for gales on Saturday across southern England, the Midlands and Wales.  An expected fall of 24 millibars in 24 hours will give the system enough fury to warrant the term “explosive cyclogenesis” or “weather bomb”.

 

Forecast models are consistent at the moment showing a deep depression system forming a weatherbomb. Latest weather models are showig a hit on Friday night into Saturday morning for Southern Ireland and UK. Forecasters have confirmed strong winds will hit the UK on Saturday although the storm's peak intensity is likely to be offshore.

KINGS LANE MAKE OVER

A professional artist has taken on the task of brightening up one of Swansea's forgotten streets.

 

Kings Lane that joins the High Street to the Strand has since been renovated as part of the Urban Village project and there is still ongoing repairs being made to the lane.

 

What is needed is a bit of colour. So professional artist John Long, 29, has started using his skills and started painting murals on any decent surface in the lane.

 

John who is based at the Elysium Gallery in the High Street said: "When you walk the short distance from the Strand to the High Street in the lane, you will be able to marvel these murals as you pass them, it takes quite some time to paint them, so I hope people will appreciate my work."

Kingsway 'urban park'  £10 million redevelopment begins.

Kingsway 'urban park'  £10 million redevelopment begins.

The Kingsway which will include a new two-way traffic route and a pedestrian-friendly environment will include the removal of the existing two lanes of traffic on the northern side of the road to help create a new urban park.

The proposed new layout will see the current bus lane removed to allow traffic to travel in both directions on the southern side of the carriageway.

 

The redevelopment of The Kingsway will also include the introduction of two-way traffic along surrounding roads including, Alexandra Road, Mansel St, Orchard St, De La Beche St and Belle Vue Way.

 

The transformation of The Kingsway and the creation of a new 'central park' in the heart of the city supports the regeneration plans and the ambitions to create a greener more welcoming city centre with more visitors and shoppers, helping support the existing businesses and attract more for investment in Swansea in the future.
