RHONDDA CYNON TAF COUNTY BOROUGH COUNCIL
CABINET MEETING 26 MARCH 2007
This Council has a number of road schemes for which land is being protected in current development plans (the Structure and four Local Plans covering the area). These schemes were inherited from the former Mid Glamorgan County Council which was the highway authority at the time the above plans were originally prepared.
The Church Village Bypass and Mountain Ash Southern Cross Valley Link schemes have been through the design stage, and are being actively progressed by the Council. Therefore, both schemes have not undergone the appraisal process for the purpose of this report, and in view of the Council’s commitment, have been categorised as high priority schemes.
In addition, a number of additional schemes have been put forward subsequent to the preparation of the above plans. Included in these are variations of earlier schemes (e.g. the Mountain Ash Northern Cross Valley Link)
High priority schemes are the Mountain Ash Southern Cross Valley Link and the A4059 Aberdare By Pass Extension,
Secondary priority schemes are the Mountain Ash Northern Cross Valley Link.
Congestion and Pressure Points on the Road Network
A470/ A4059 Abercynon Roundabout
A4059 Mountain Ash
Aberdare Bypass generally
A4059 Aberdare Bypass/ Commercial Street
A4233 Monk Street, Aberdare
B4275 Aberaman Road/ Link Road to Aberdare Bypass
Mountain Ash Southern Cross Valley Link
This scheme is already being actively progressed by the Council, and has therefore not undergone the appraisal process for the purpose of this report. Due to the significant commitment already made by the Council, it has been categorised as a high priority scheme.
Mountain Ash Northern Cross Valley Link
A cross-valley link, which links the east to the west bank, north of the town bridge.
The proposed cross-river link will bring environmental relief to residential and commercial properties within the town centre and the Miskin and Penrhiwceiber area.
The scheme will facilitate regeneration of the area, and will provide improved safety and environmental conditions in the town centre. The scheme will provide a link to the new Mountain Ash Hospital.
Another tailback from Mountain Ash to Abercynon tonight when is this council going to build the bridges at Mountain Ash?
