  • Llantrisant Road Roadworks

    From 26 July, 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 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.

  • 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.
