Significant culvert repair scheme at Brook Street in Aberaman

Residents in Aberaman are being given advanced notice of an essential upcoming scheme at Brook Street and Mount Hill Street to repair an ordinary watercourse culvert – which is likely to cause some disruption locally. 

The scheme will undergo significant repair and improvement works within the highway on Mount Hill Street and on private land at Brook Street which, if left unattended, will put several local properties at risk – and may also pose a risk of flooding further down the watercourse network.

The Council has appointed Arch Services to deliver the work, and residents will notice the contractor’s initial activity to set up its site from Monday, July 1. Work will take place through the summer and end during early autumn 2024.

A road closure will be needed once the main scheme gets underway later in July 2024 – while a site compound area will need to be established locally. Disruption to residents’ parking will unfortunately be unavoidable. Full details are currently being finalised and will be communicated with residents shortly.

The Council’s contractor will make every effort to minimise disruption, and will maintain access to all premises. Local residents directly affected by the works will receive a letter providing further information about the final arrangements.

A spokesperson for Rhondda Cynon Taf Council said: “We’d like to thank residents in advance for accommodating this important scheme in Aberaman, which will undertake a significant culvert repair at Brook Street. Unfortunately, this will cause unavoidable traffic and parking disruption at Brook Street and Mount Hill Street, but the work is essential to protect local properties and alleviate the risk of flooding further downstream during heavy rainfall.

“Residents will notice site setup taking place from the first week of July 2024, and then the main scheme – which will include a road closure – will start later in the month. The full arrangements are currently being agreed, and will be shared with residents once finalised. Please be assured that we will work very closely with our contractor to minimise local disruption as much as possible.”
