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.
The latest 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.
Works to create the Metro and electrify the railway tracks through Radyr are ongoing and may cause disruption at times including the provision of Rail Replacement Bus Services.
Llantrisant Road Roadworks
The latest update on roadworks from Plasdŵr was published on 7 September 2023:
The temporary lights at the junction of Clos Parc Radur and Maes Y Haf have been removed and the infrastructure works have been finalised.
The current infrastructure works on Llantrisant Road are expected to be completed by the end of October. All temporary lights will be removed at this point.
Temporary fencing around the pond near the Heol Isaf junction will be removed by early September in time for the opening of Ysgol Gynradd Groes-wen Primary School.
Fencing will remain in place on other parts (further up the Llantristant Road) to ensure a safe working area for contractors until the western works are fully complete.
Contractors have now started preparations for infrastructure improvements on Pentrebane Road. These preparatory works began on August 7th and are expected to take 8-10 weeks to complete.
Works on Pentrebane Road are currently expected to begin in early 2024, timings TBC.
For any issues with temporary lights please contact the traffic management provider on 01633 853 300.
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.
Late evening and weekend services through Radyr Station (including services on the City Line, the main Valley Line into Cardiff and services up the valleys from Radyr) may be disrupted with some Rail Replacement Bus services running using Radyr Station as an interchange hub for these replacement bus services – resulting in decreased rail options and increased rail replacement bus traffic through the village whilst this work is carried out.
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.
Radyr Hub (Library)
Radyr Hub (Library) has now re-opened the full range of services and clubs/groups are re-starting their meetings in the Library. Full details including opening hours can be found on the Cardiff Council pages on Hubs and Libraries.
It is also possible to collect recycling bags and food waste bags from the library again during its opening hours without an appointment.
More information can be found on the Library Facebook page.
Development of the Cardiff Local Development Plan
August 2023 – The draft strategy for Cardiff’s Revised Local Development Plan is out for consultation. Make your views heard on this stage by 5 October 2023. Read more in our article on the LDP or visit the official consultation page at https://cardiffldp.consultation.ai/
February 2023 – The next stage is consultation on the Preferred Strategy which will set out the preferred level of housing and jobs growth for the plan and the spatial strategy to deliver this growth. It will also identify those Key Policies which will inform the preparation of a Deposit Plan. The Preferred Strategy will now be considered by Cabinet and Council later than anticipated in 2023, with consultation likely to be in the Summer of 2023.
August 2022 – Due to a delay in the release of Census data required as part of the basis for the LDP, the process of preparing the Revised LDP is running behind the originally published schedule. The consultation on strategic options is still showing on the Consultation Website as scheduled for a 10 week consultation November 2022 – February 2023 but we are yet to have this confirmed as current by Council Officers.
April 2022 – The Radyr and Morganstown Local Development Group (RMLDG) have circulated a leaflet to over 6,000 houses raising awareness of the issues raised by a revised LDP and some of the candidate sites currently under consideration.
July 2021 – The RMA have submitted their response to the Draft Vision, Issues and Objectives for the revised LDP. Read more about the review process.
