The Council will shortly carry out a resurfacing scheme at Aberdare Town Centre with works scheduled at night and on Sundays to minimise disruption.
This is the latest scheme delivered by the Council to future-proof its roads and footways through #RCTinvest, as part of its Highways Capital Programme for 2018/19. In October 2018, Cabinet Members agreed a three-year £23.5m package to continue the Council’s ‘accelerated funding’ approach to road maintenance and repair – starting in 2019/20 and continuing to 2021/22.
There are two main elements to the upcoming scheme in Aberdare, at Duke Street and Cardiff Road. It will deliver resurfacing to the carriageway and the bus station entrance – and the work is not expected to require a road closure.
The Duke Street works will take place on a number of consecutive Sundays, starting on March 24. Work will take place all-day, requiring ‘Stop/Go’ boards from Duke Street’s junction with Commercial Street to Tinney’s Roundabout. The work will include carriageway resurfacing, along with the replacement of block paving with Tarmac near the bus depot. As a temporary measure, buses will exit via the taxi entrance, under manned traffic management.
The Cardiff Road works will take place over three consecutive nights from Monday, March 25. Work will begin at 7pm, and will be completed before the peak traffic period each following morning. This work is set to be completed on the morning of Thursday, March 28. Work will require traffic management from Cardiff’s Road’s junction with Station Street, to Tinney’s Roundabout.
Please note, these works are weather-dependant, and could be rescheduled during periods of inclement weather. The Council will communicate any changes to the scheduled arrangements via its social media accounts – ‘@RCTCouncil’ on Twitter and ‘Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’ on Facebook.
