As part of the New Llys Cadwyn development (formerly Taff Vale) in Taff Street, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council will need to undertake essential drainage works, which will result in the need to close the lower section of Crossbrook Street, between Iceland and the entrance to Gas Road Car Park, for a period of time.
The upcoming work is due to commence on Monday, February 17th and will last up to 20 weeks. It is not possible to complete this work without closing the lower section of Crossbrook Street, in the interest of public safety. Closing the road will also ensure this work can be completed more efficiently and quickly.
During the work, the automated bollard in Taff Street will be temporarily taken out of operation, with the Town Centre’s restricted access for motorists (usually between 11am and 3pm each day) being temporarily lifted.
Motorists wishing to access Gas Road Car Park will be signposted through Taff Street, taking a left turn at Game (as illustrated on the map). Conversely, vehicles will be directed out of the car park by turning left at Game – through Taff Street and onto High Street, to join Sardis Road (A4058) near Pontypridd Railway Station.
Temporary traffic control will be in operation and will be further enhanced during peak times to ensure that the impact is minimised as much as possible.
Gas Road Car Park will remain open throughout the works, but its capacity will be reduced as a section of the car park will be used as a site compound. The Council advises that, if possible, motorists should use nearby long-stay car parks at the Goods Yard, Millfield, Berw Road or Sardis Road as an alternative.
The number 99 bus service from Pontypridd Bus Station, which is the only current bus service that travels directly through the Town Centre, will continue to operate as normal – though each journey may take slightly longer due to the presence of other vehicles driving through Taff Street.
Whilst this work will no doubt present some disruption within the town, it’s undertaking will assist in the completion of the Llys Cadwyn development, which will benefit the town going forward.
