Green Park Weir on River Afan Complete

Work has been completed on a £2.7 million improvement project undertaken by ABP South Wales to upgrade Green Park Weir on the River Afan in Port Talbot.

The Weir was officially reopened by Aberavon AM David Rees on Thursday 14th September.

Green Park Weir improvement project was the result of several years of collaboration between members of the River Afan Water Management Group. The group brings together key stakeholders and is composed of Associated British Ports (ABP), Natural Resources Wales (NRW), Tata Steel (UK), Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, and the Afan Valley Angling Club.

This vital renovation project was completed by local construction company Andrew Scott between June 2016 and September 2017. It will provide huge benefits to the River Afan in terms of improved water management, increased water security for local businesses, and safeguarding the well-being of future generations in the area.

The weir exists to impound water in the Afan which flows down a feeder channel to Port Talbot dock, providing water for dock operations and to Tata Steel (UK) for cooling and other essential purposes in the Port Talbot Steelworks.
