Nant Y Moch, Ceredigion

After years of water erosion and finally a very wet winter, we needed a JCB to carry out repairs to this popular route.

This was the second approved project in Ceredigion, following in line with previous Highways agreements. Again, Green Lane Association Area Reps carried out surveys in advance to ensure legality and route status, working in conjunction with the Highways department.

The UCR had taken an extreme weathering by water throughout the winter, and already well eroded washouts were becoming dangerous and impassable for some. Ceredigion CC provided a JCB and driver for the 2 days to work alongside Treadlightly volunteers to level out and grade some substantial lengths of unsurfaced road and create various large drainage gullies.

Green Lane Association & Treadlightly volunteers then agreed to carry out waymarking along the entire route to ensure all intersections were clearly identified to all users. Due to the length of the route this was done using several small teams of volunteers, with posts supplied by Ceredigion CC and Treadlightly funded signage.
