Just an update from Plasdwr about future roadworks. As we reported here, we have asked Plasdwr for a 'lessons learned' report, arising from the serious inconvenience caused to residents in recent weeks - along with plans for how they will seek to minimise disruption in future.
Here is Plasdwr's news:
The works around the Llantrisant Road junction with Heol Isaf are complex and will therefore be ongoing until summer 2020. They include road widening to incorporate a bus lane and cycleway, totally new utility infrastructure, drainage works and then the permanent traffic lights.
The associated traffic management systems in place during the works will vary according to what is being done at the time. We are working closely with Cardiff Council to get the work done as swiftly as possible given the inevitable disruption which, we understand, is very frustrating for road-users.
These are part of a wider plan for Llantrisant Road and the next phase of works will be between Clos Parc Radur and Goitre Fach including road widening for the new bus lane and the construction of two new junctions.
The reasons for these roadworks are rooted in Cardiff Council’s strategy to ensure that people can choose to walk, cycle and use public transport rather than drive. In line with that, the network within Plasdŵr has been planned so that walking, cycling and public transport will be the easiest ways to get around. For existing, neighbouring roads, we are delivering transport improvements also in line with that strategy as part of our community contributions, and the works on Llantrisant Road are part of those.
