Taff Trail works in Cilfynydd to enable future bridge replacement

The Council will undertake site investigation and minor clearance work on the Taff Trail in Cilfynydd to enable the future replacement of a footbridge. This will require a temporary closure to a section of the footpath.

The Nant-Cae-Dudwg bridge, which supports a shared cycling and pedestrian footpath on the Taff Trail, is in poor condition and requires replacement.

The Council will carry out ground investigations on site, as well as localised vegetation clearance to widen the path access at specific points, in order to assist in the future demolition and construction of the bridge.

This initial scheme will take place from Monday, January 21, and is scheduled to last for approximately six weeks. The work requires the full closure of a section of the Taff Trail, in order to ensure public safety

The southern end of the closure is from the entrance near Coedpenmaen Road in Trallwn, heading north and running generally adjacent to the river. The northern end of the closure is to the rear of Cilfynydd RFC’s sports field.

Access to the sports field and the lane adjacent to it will not be affected.

Please note, the closed section of the Taff Trail will reopen temporarily on Sunday, February 10, to accommodate an Ultra Run event from Brecon to Cardiff.

The Council would like to thank residents for their cooperation during this necessary closure period, and will communicate to residents the arrangements for reopening the route.
