Trallwn is the latest area set to benefit from RCTinvest with a £50,000 investment in the informal parking area on West Street and Highway resurfacing. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The parking area will be fully resurfaced along with the surrounding highway, from in front of the car park on West Street around to the Llanover Arms. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The main works are scheduled to take place during October half term (24th-31st) with some preparatory works taking place during the week before. During this time (17th-31st) ALL cars will need to be removed from the parking area, any cars left in the parking area after this time, WILL be removed by the Council so that these essential works can be carried out. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The works will be carried out during the half term break to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum. The car park will be closed to motorists for around two weeks, from 17th – 31st October. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of the Council, who is also responsible for Highways and Transport Services, said: “The informal parking area on West Street, Trallwn and the immediate surrounding highway are the latest beneficiaries of our £200m, three year, RCTinvest programme which is Improving highways, transport infrastructure, leisure facilities, play areas, schools and town and village centres across the county borough. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Officers continue to monitor our highways across Rhondda Cynon Taf to ensure that we tackle as many areas as possible – with more streets/roads set to be announced for next year as it is vital that our residents have the highways infrastructures they need to carry out their daily business – from commuting to work to shopping in our town centres. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“In the current financial climate we continue to show ambition to improve the infrastructure that sustains our communities and businesses and attracts new investment. We will continue to seek to maximise available grants and funding streams and add further value with our own capital investments.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Over £53m has already been invested in improving and repairing the County Borough’s Highways and Transportation Infrastructures and on Strategic Projects since 2011. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

This work demonstrates Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s commitment to maintain and improve the road infrastructure for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors alike. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Over 360 tonnes of tarmac will be laid across the informal parking area and highway along with the replacement of kerbs and the installation of Aco drainage. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

In order to carry out the improvement works, road closures will be in place for West Street, Trallwn from its junction with South Street to its junction with Bridge Street on Sunday 23rd October and Sunday 30th October from 8am – 6pm. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Motorists are advised to follow the following diversion route – ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

From the northern side of the closure proceed via South Street, Middle Street, Bonvilston Road, The Parade, the White Bridge, Berw Road and Bridge Street to the southern side of the closure. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

From the southern side of the closure, proceed via Bridge Street, Berw Road, the White Bridge, The Parade and West Street to the northern side of the closure. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Access will be maintained for emergency services vehicles and pedestrians. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Details of likely disruptions and updates will be posted on the Council’s social media sites where possible and residents are urged to follow/like the Council’s pages for up to date information. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
