Pontypridd Bridge Weekend Closure

British Telecom will close Pontypridd’s Victoria Road bridge this weekend for essential works.

The bridge will be closed from 7pm tonight (Friday, November 21) to 6am on Monday (November 24).

The full closures are necessary as British Telecom Openreach undertake trench reinstatement works on the bridge.

During the closure all vehicles will be diverted via Gelliwastad Road and the Broadway to the Brown Lenox (Sainsburys) roundabout (and vice versa).

Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project and the emergency services have been consulted and agreed with the proposals.

The Council is working with British Telecom to insure that key telecommunications apparatus serving the town is adequately protected from future traffic loading.

Currently the bridge is undergoing a £1million major refurbishment project funded by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
