Llantrisant Road Roadworks
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 in earnest from 1 June 2021.
Work has begun for the next phase of changes along Llantrisant Road which 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.
Railway works in Radyr & Morganstown
Transport for Wales (TfW) is due to start on electrifying the Valleys Lines, with significant work centred on the Mound Field in Morganstown and also at Radyr Station.
The recording of the TfW briefing meeting for residents through the RMA held on Wednesday 24 March 2021 is now available. This was a special meeting at which TfW staff gave an update on the South Wales Metro, Morganstown Compounds and Bridge at Gelynis Farm. The meeting also covered some of the recent issues with noise from overnight works to cut back vegetation along the City Line.
TfW issued this letter on 18 March as a result of complaints of noise from residents near the City Line at Radyr Station regarding the overnight work of cutting back vegetation adjacent to the track. The letter contains contact details if further problems arise.
A planning application has now been submitted for a new bridge over the railway at Gelynis Farm. Details of this and the February newsletter to residents from TfW can be found in the new section on Local Planning matters by the RMA. The Community Council are also looking at this matter.

From 15 March 2021, the restrictions across Wales were updated to “stay local”. This means that public transport can now be used for an increased number of journeys but please be considerate of those who have an essential journey for work or caring purposes when planning your journey.
The Welsh Government has made it a legal requirement to wear a three-layer, non-medical, face covering on public transport, which includes taxis. While the vast majority of people will be able to wear a face covering, some will be exempt. These include children under the age of 11 years old, and people with certain medical conditions. A full list of exemptions can be found in the Welsh Government Coronavirus FAQs.
Cardiff Bus have amended their timetables again to respond to the expected increase in demand. Here is a link to the substantive 63 bus timetable.
Transport for Wales continue to review the amended schedule to Radyr in light of traffic volumes and their works on the lines. View latest railway timetable information for Radyr.

Royal Mail disruption
The Cardiff North West Delivery Office is closed following the flooding caused by storm Dennis. Over Christmas, the Web Team have learned that this is now to become a permanent closure. We are still seeking further information from Royal Mail on what implications this has for our access to postal services.
Can we remind you that collecting packages from Lisvane Sorting Office is not your only option. You can also phone up and arrange for re-delivery at a time that is mutually convenient, or even arrange to collect the package from Radyr Post Office. The more people who request these services the more evidence we will have to re-instate a more local Sorting Office.
Full details of the effects of this closure can be seen in our article on the after-effects of the storm.
