What Are We Doing Now?

Trago Mills roundabout resurfacing

The road in the area will be resurfaced between the hours of 6pm to 6 am on the 15th, 16rd & 17th of April.

The area will be signal controlled for the duration of the works.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience while we improve the network.

  • Raised Plateaus at Gellideg North junction and Cyfarthfa Mews are yet to be completed due to poor weather conditions.

  • Block Stone Retaining wall works are now complete.

  • Street Lighting columns on the southern section north of Trago Mills are in the process of being relocated.

  • Topsoil and Grass Seeding to be completed throughout the length of the scheme during the month of March.

Quakers Yard

There will be works on Cardiff Road at the cross roads in Quakers yard from the 19th February, and for the next 4 weeks. The pedestrian crossing is being upgraded from a pelican to a toucan crossing as well as some minor bridge improvement works. 

We have 4 way lights in the area for the duration and we will do our best to minimise disruption, but please, if you are able to, use an alternative route.

Merthyr College car park.

We will be carrying out surveys between the 1st and the 8th of March around the College Carpark. The footpath on Avenue De Clichy, along the river will be closed with pedestrians being diverted along the Taff Trail. The works are expected to last for one week. We will also be using several of the spaces within the carpark for our site compound however this will be minimal.

Thank you for your cooperation while we make these improvements to our network.
