  • Llantrisant Road Roadworks

    Whilst there has been no traffic management in place on Clos Parc Radur or Llantrisant Road during the festive period, two way lights will return early in the New Year when contractors return to continue work to install two new signalised junctions off Llantrisant Road.

    From 26 July 2010, Plasdŵr contrator, Walters, will be creating a highway drainage pond on behalf of Cardiff Council to the west of Herbert March Close (near the petrol station on Llantrisant Road) to help facilitate the essential infrastructure works taking place along Llantrisant Road. Walters will start fencing off the area from 12 July in preparation for the works to begin. Pedestrian access along Llantrisant Road will remain in place and the footpath running through the east of the parkland will remain open for the majority of the drainage works.

    The team from Plasdŵr posted an update on their works on Llantrisant Road on the Plasdŵr website as the contractors will begin on the roadway around the entrance to Clos Parc Radur in earnest from 1 June 2021. These works will include the removal of Clos Parc Radur’s roundabout, a 4-way signal junction and widening of the road at this point for new pedestrian walkways, bus and cycle lanes. Plasdŵr estimate that this work will be complete by Summer 2022.
