Two convoys per day are programmed consisting of two very long vehicles travelling in tandem requiring the road to be completely closed to traffic from the Treherbert side of the mountain for an approximate 30 minute period, traffic are able to follow the convoy from the Hirwaun side (bottom Rhigos Road).
Road closures are anticipated between 10.15am – 11.15am and/or at 2pm to 3pm Monday to Friday up until April 2013.
Residents are advised that there will not necessarily be closures every day and information will be sent to various media daily by the contractor to confirm when movements are taking place.
