Significant works to reconstruct a highway retaining wall at Ynysangharad Road, Pontypridd, have now been completed by the Council.

Works to demolish and replace the wall, after a section of it collapsed, began in July thanks to a £60,000 investment. The scheme has included the stabilisation, re-building and re-pointing of a 50m section of the wall.

During the works, in order to maintain public safety, the affected area was fenced off to allow the reconstruction works to commence. Temporary traffic management required over a small section of road has now been removed.

Works have now been substantially completed and the traffic management removed. Some peripheral works will continue in the coming days.

Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and Cabinet Member with responsibility for Highways, said: “The Council has undertaken this significant work at Ynysangharad Road after a section of the wall collapsed. The necessary works, to re-build the wall, have made the area safer for local residents and road users.

“I am sure local residents and businesses will welcome the news that the Council has now finished these works, thanks to a £60,000 investment. This scheme once again shows that improving Highways in Rhondda Cynon Taf, for the benefit and safety of residents and visitors, is a priority for this Council.

“The works were complex and it was necessary for them to be undertaken over a number of weeks. The Council worked closely with its contractor to complete the scheme as soon as possible.

“I’d like to thank local residents and road users for their cooperation while this scheme was carried out.”
