Drainage and repairs to CR127

Powys planned to carry out repairs to CR127 (Llandrindod Wells) but the lane was too wet for the plant and machinery to move in. So it was agreed volunteers would hand dig the necessary drainage trenches to get the water off the lane and begin the drainage of two large bogs which had made the lane unusable in the winter. 12 volunteers from the Green Lane Association and TRF turned out on a wonderful sunny day and dug trenches and grips to drain as much water away before contractors moved in to start grading. Over 4,000 tons of stone was used to make good the surface. The completed works raised the lane above the two bogs and brought a previously unusable lane back into use by all from walkers to vehicles.
