Highways update – Llantrisant Road and Clos Parc Radur

Plasdwr Highways updates

Over the past few months, our contractors have good progress on the essential highway improvement works along Llantrisant Road and Clos Parc Radur.

On Clos Parc Radur, our contractors are currently constructing a new junction near Heol Rufus and a new footpath from the junction with Llantrisant Road, along Clos Parc Radur to Plas Mynach. These works should be almost complete by mid-December, and traffic management will be removed over the Christmas period. In the new year, our contractors will continue with the new drainage and footpath works, these are expected to be complete in the spring.

On Llantrisant Road, near Goitre Fach, our contractors are continuing works to widen the road to install new bus and cycle lanes, and to install two new signalised junctions – one at Clos Parc Radyr and one between Ty Gwyn Farm and Goitre Fach. Temporary 3-way traffic signals are currently in place and will remain until the Christmas period, when they will switch to predominantly 2-way traffic lights for the remainder of the works. All traffic signals will continue to be manually operated during peak hours to alleviate congestion.

Our contractors have also started work off the highway, at the intersection with Redrow’s Cwrt Sant Ioan development, to create a new road which will eventually form part of one of the main entrances into Plasdŵr. When complete, this area will include landscaping, footpaths and play parks. We’re currently undertaking work to protect existing utility services before installing new drainage over the next few months. These works are taking place off the highway and are unlikely to have any impact on traffic.

There will be no traffic management in place on Clos Parc Radur or Llantrisant Road during the festive period.

Construction works both on and off Llantrisant Road will continue into the new year. Our contractors are working hard to to minimise disruption as much as possible. We know that work of this nature comes with inevitable disruption and apologise for the inconvenience. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience so far, and over the coming months.
