pontrhondda bridge

The Council has announced that work will shortly resume on the Pontrhondda Bridge replacement in Llwynypia, following the appointment of a contractor to complete the scheme.

During March 2019, the Council announced it would undertake the necessary legal processes following confirmation that construction firm Dawnus, which was the appointed contractor for the scheme, had entered administration.

The Council has since been in negotiation with previous tenderers for the scheme. These have been very complex discussions due to the technical challenges of the bridge replacement scheme itself – along with the wider issue of a company going into administration midway through a project.

Following successful negotiations, the Council has now appointed contractor Knights Brown to resume the scheme, and work will restart in the week commencing Monday, June 3.

The Council continues to work hard to keep any delays to the scheme to an absolute minimum – and it is anticipated that the work will be completed by the newly-appointed contractor during late summer 2019. However, it should be noted that there are still complex issues to be resolved.

The Council would like to thank local residents for their continued cooperation for the duration of this scheme.
