A short line of cottages off Upper Park Street offered little resistance to bulldozers clearing the way for the dawning of a £65 bright new Llanelli dawning.
The removal of the buildings is one of the last stages of clearance work heralding the new East Gate destined to become a mecca for family entertainment boosting the town’s economy and fortunes later this year.
Known in recent years at the CopyTech buildings the old stone and brick cottages were fully architecturally surveyed and found to have little or no merit other than being photographically recoirded for posterity.
Contractors said they were poorly constructed and collapsed in little more than 30 minutes with little encouragement.
The cottages clearance has linked the £25million East Gate development with the £14.7 Y Ffwrnes theatre complex giving new vistas to the old Zion Chapal which is listed and incorporated in the new developments.
