Railway works in Radyr & Morganstown
Transport for Wales (TfW) have started on works to upgrade the Valleys Lines including electrification, with significant work centred on the Mound Field in Morganstown and also at Radyr Station.
This week (w/b 21 February 2022) some residents in Morganstown have been notified by letter from TfW that works will be commencing to create capacity for Road-Rail vehicles to access the tracks near Gelynis Farm. This will include some night works but as yet we have still not been notified of an out-of-hours contact for TfW. The Web Team are still seeking clarity on this matter from TfW.
TfW’s latest (August) Newsletter was published on 16 August 2021.
On 28 July 2021, planning permission was granted for the proposed new bridge over the railway line at Gelynis Farm. Further information on this work can be found in the section on Local Planning matters by the RMA.
Llantrisant Road Roadworks
This phase of works, which 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 is estimated by Plasdŵr to be complete by Summer 2022.
Whilst the legal requirement to wear a face covering on public transport has now ended, many providers are still recommending this as a method of keeping safe when on public transport..
Cardiff Bus timetables changed again on 13 February 2022. However, the amended timetable still only sees 1 bus per hour through Radyr & Morganstown and Cardiff Bus are unable to say when we can expect a full restoration of services to previous levels. Here is a link to the current 63 bus timetable.
From 28 March there will be a Rail Replacement Bus Service extending from Cardiff Central through Radyr (on both Standard and City lines) and on to Pontypridd from 19.30 each Sunday to Thursday evening. There will also be some complete weekend shutdowns of the same stretch of line with buses running from Radyr Station when train services are not.
Transport for Wales continue to review the amended railway schedule to/from Radyr in light of traffic volumes and their works on the lines. Due to the continuing prevalence of COVID-19 amongst staff, many last minute changes to the timetable are still happening so please check before you travel.
