Un­safe round­about sculp­ture

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

Your views on: THE Swirl Cone on the round­about near Bynea has been re­moved af­ter be­ing deemed un­safe. The cen­tral pole of the sculp­ture, said to rep­re­sent Llanelli’s ties with the steel in­dus­try, had buck­led fol­low­ing a collision with a ve­hi­cle. You said:

TRACY REES I thought it looked fab...

JAMES WATKINS Make who­ever crashed there re­place it.

STEVEN SAL­TER I liked it, the in­sur­ance com­pany of the driver should put it right.

MAR­I­LYN JOY I re­ally like it and hope they put it back. Nice to see some­one had the imag­i­na­tion to put some­thing dif­fer­ent there. KIRSTY SA­MUELS Looked like a may­pole to me, don’t think any­one from out­side the area would re­alise it was sup­posed to rep­re­sent Llanelli’s her­itage.

SHARON MCQUAIDE It was a com­plete eye­sore and a waste of money from the be­gin­ning. SO­PHIE EARL-PARK We’ve al­ways called it the cheese slicer, I wouldn’t fancy be­ing on a mo­tor­bike and hit­ting that thing.

DAVID BE­VAN Quite amus­ing some of the posts calling it a waste of money... how much did the coun­cil spend on the stone walling on the two round­abouts lead­ing to Trostre? At least it was unique.

ADRIAN PROP­ERTY My un­der­stand­ing is it was money from the EU that paid for the ham­ster cage and the stone walls. TR­ISH GRIF­FITHS It was dan­ger­ous and a waste of money. STUART CHAD­WICK Tr­ish Grif­fiths how was it dan­ger­ous? It wasn’t a car

trap!

GRA­HAM OWENS Not a prob­lem if peo­ple go around the round­about in­stead of over it.
