Villagers of Llangadog not happy with GPS navigation

Posted on Saturday, November 17 2007 @ 18:55:10 CET by

Residents of the Llangadog community located in Carmarthenshire, Wales aren't really happy with GPS navigation devices as these products send a lot of heavy traffic through their neighborhood. All these trucks and lorries cause a lot of damage it seems:
Villagers in Carmarthenshire say they fear restoration work is being damaged by drivers using satellite navigation.

Residents in Llangadog said trucks and lorries were smashing into buildings that have already had thousands of pounds spent on them.

One property, once thought to have been a toll house, has been hit three times.

The Townscape Heritage Initiative, which oversees the restoration work, said there was growing concern over the rise in traffic through the village.

Around £1.5m is being spent restoring landmark properties in Llangadog and Llandovery.

The Townscape officer for Carmarthenshire Council, Roger Morgan, said Llangadog residents were convinced that satellite navigation was to blame for the damage.

"It's a very small narrow road and these large lorries are coming through the village and causing problems for everyone," he said.
