A four-week programme of works has started in St Catherine’s Street to help deliver an improved crossing point to the new shopping development.
Carmarthenshire council’s traffic management proposed to complete the work in February keeping two-way traffic flow during peak hours.
There will be a need to operate single file but this will be kept to a minimum and hopefully only outside the peak traffic times -morning and evening rush hours.
County executive board member for transport services, Philip Hughes, said: "Everyone will appreciate that this is a strategic hub in Carmarthen's highway network and in the light of last year's tragic accident it is essential that this work is done in the interests of the safety of the public be they pedestrians, cyclists or drivers.
"The work will be carried out as quickly as possible with, hopefully, the minimum of disruption ."
