Temporary traffic lights will be required at Penrhiwceiber Road during Whitsun as part of the Mountain Ash Cross Valley Link Scheme – scheduled for the school holiday to minimise disruption.

The multi-million pound Cross Valley Link continues to make good progress in its main construction phase. It will see a 60-metre road bridge built from Cwm Cynon Industrial Estate to Miskin Road, providing a vital new link for traffic travelling between the A4059 and B4275. The project is a long term-aspiration for the Council and residents, and is due for completion in 2019/20.

While works along Miskin Road have been continuing, the Council’s contractor is planning preparatory earthworks at the tie-in of Miskin Road and Penrhiwceiber Road. There will also be a drilling rig on Penrhiwceiber Road to carry out further ground investigations. Temporary traffic management is required to allow the contractor to carry out the works, which will involve two-way traffic signals in the vicinity of the Mount Pleasant public house.

This work will take place from Saturday, May 25, to Sunday, June 2, and temporary two-way traffic lights will be required from Tuesday, May 28, until the works are completed. This will facilitate single-file traffic from Bush Road/Cynon View Junction, for around 50 metres along Penrhiwceiber Road.

It will also require the temporary closure of bus stops at Cynon View (for travel towards Mountain Ash Town Centre) and on Penrhiwceiber Road (for travel towards Penrhiwceiber) – from May 28 to June 2. Bus users are asked to use the existing bus stop on Glyngwyn Street in place of the Cynon View stop, while the Penrhiwceiber Road stop will move towards Miskin Baptist Church.

The Council’s contractor Walters-Sisk continues to hold drop-in events each Tuesday (3-4pm) and Thursday (10-11am) at its Bailey Street site compound. Residents are welcome to attend to ask questions about the upcoming work.

The Council would like to thank residents and road users in advance for their cooperation.
