Preparing a future remediation scheme on the Cynon Trail at Penywaun

Penywaun 3 - Copy

Residents are advised there will be a two-day closure of the Cynon Trail at Penywaun, to carry out trial holes that will inform a future landslip remediation scheme. 

The shared route will close on Tuesday and Wednesday (March 26-27) for the Council’s appointed contractor Quantum Geotechnic Ltd to carry out site activity to the rear of Erw Las, where the small landslip previously took place.

The Cynon Trail will need to close to ensure safety – from the Erw Las link to a point at the western end of Gamlyn Isaf Farm (where a fence and closure sign are already in place).

An alternative route for pedestrians will be accessible opposite the riverside footbridge that links the Cynon Trail to Lon Las. This route leads to a residential estate that subsequently directs walkers/cyclists back to the Cynon Trail via the Erw Las link.

Cyclists are advised to dismount and take the pedestrian diversion.

These investigatory works are being delivered using funding secured by the Council from Welsh Government’s Active Travel Fund.

Thanks to the community in advance for your cooperation.
