Tramway Path Closure Notification

As part of our work to upgrade the A465 to a full dual carriageway it is necessary for Dwr Cymru Welsh Water to divert the water mains and sewers around the A465. In order for this work to be undertaken safely sections of the Tramway path will be closed temporarily at Hirwaun. This is part of Cynon Trail / National Cycle Network Route 46, which uses Footpaths 23 Hirwaun and 3 Penywaun. The closure will start at 08:00 hrs on Monday 8 August 2022 and will be in place until January 2023. We will inform you when the works have been completed and the pathway re-opened. The work is taking place in three different phases and during each of these a different diversion route will be in place for users of the pathway. The three phases of the work are shown on the map. Phase 1 runs from 8 August until late September 2022 Phase 2 runs from late September to the end of October 2022 Phase 3 runs from November 2022 until January 2023 The three diversion routes can be seen here: We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support during the construction work.
