The ongoing period of extremely cold weather is impacting the ability of contractors to undertake key elements of improvement works at the above site. In particular, the freezing temperatures mean that tarmac cannot be laid to finalise the work on Pontygwindy Road.
It was anticipated that the closure of Pontygwindy Road would be in force until 06.00am Monday 5th March, but unfortunately the road closure will need to be extended until Friday 9th March 2018, but this is subject to weather conditions.
We recognise that the closure is disruptive and your patience and co-operation is appreciated, but the ongoing weather conditions are obviously beyond our control and we are facing the possibility of further heavy snow over the next few days.
Whilst the road closure is in force there will be no access to Pontygwindy Road from Pwllypant Roundabout and Pontygwindy Road will be closed northbound at the junction with the access road leading to the Catnic Industrial Estate. All diversion routes will be clearly signed. Pedestrian access will be via the Pontygwindy Industrial estate and the overbridge to Llanbradach. If disabled access is required then this will be through the works, however, you will need to contact a member of the site team on 07977 197125 to arrange an escorted access.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the dedicated website page for the A468/9 Pwllypant Roundabout Improvement scheme which can be accessed via the link below:
