We have received the following advice from Katie Powis, Plasdwr's Community Liaison Manger. If you're driving through this area, you will probably need to leave slightly earlier than you normally would, to reach your destination on time. In a previous article, we referred to the fact that we are facing many more months of disruption.
Here's Katie's advice:
Essential works will be taking place throughout September and October to create the new Heol Isaf junction and install BT and drainage services across Llantrisant Road to the new development.
On the evening August 28th three-way traffic lights will be installed at the Heol Isaf roundabout to create a new crossing within the carriageway and complete road surfacing work. These lights are expected to be removed on September 2nd before the schools return.
On September 3rd, two-way traffic lights will be in place in front of the filling station to install a BT chamber, BT road crossing and to complete works to the northern footpath. This work can’t be installed and made safe to re-open the road during our usual 09:30-15:30 traffic light hours so we have permission for these lights to be in place 24 hrs a day. These works are due for completion by September 9th.
From September 9th, two-way traffic lights will be in place to the west of the filling station to install drainage across the road. These lights will be in operation during our usual 09:30-15:30 hours until October 2nd.
From October 3rd we have permission for these lights to be in place 24 hrs a day to complete the drainage installation, these are expected to be removed on October 12th.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused, our contractors are working hard to complete this work as quickly as possible.
