Cranes

An all-day road closure is required this Sunday (June 23) in Pontypridd town centre to remove one of the tower cranes from the Llys Cadwyn development site. 

The office-led mixed use development is making visible progress, as the three buildings continue to be transformed. 

The scheme was named Llys Cadwyn (Chain Court) in an event attended by the First Minister of Wales in March 2019. The name reflects the proud heritage of Rhondda Cynon Taf and the world-famous Brown Lenox chain works which were based in Pontypridd. 

South Wales Metro operator Transport for Wales will be based at Number 1 Llys Cadwyn (building nearest Gas Road Car Park) – bringing hundreds of jobs to Pontypridd. 

Number 2 Llys Cadwyn (centre building) will include Grade A office floorspace and one food/drink unit, while 3 Llys Cadwyn (nearest Bridge Street) will be a gateway building incorporating a 21st Century library, Council customer contact point and a state-of-the-art leisure/fitness centre. 

A road closure to remove one of the tower cranes from the site is required from 3am until 6pm on Sunday, June 23. The road will remain closed all day, and is scheduled to re-open on Sunday evening. 

During this period, Crossbrook Street will close from Gas Road Car Park to its junction with Gelliwastad Road/Morgan Street – and Taff Street will close from its junction with Bridge Street to the Town Centre fountain. Access will be maintained for pedestrians throughout, but the Taff Street taxi rank will close. 

Alternative vehicle access to the Town Centre will be diverted to Penuel Lane, which will be signposted. Town Centre businesses have been contacted to inform them about this closure. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
