Pedestrian Crossing Safety Improvements in Penrhiwceiber
Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC will begin a series of improvements to a pedestrian crossing in Penrhiwceiber next week to increase safety.
Work on the pedestrian crossing at B4275 Penrhiwceiber Road – near the medical centre and paddling pool – will begin from Monday, 9 March. The scheme will provide a safer environment for pedestrians and road users.
The work will move the crossing point a short distance away from the junction, while the kerb will also be realigned to improve the left turn onto Cross Street for southbound traffic. The scheme will also include extending the electrical ducting and cabling, along with carriageway resurfacing and road markings.
This scheme is jointly funded by #RCTinvest, through the £25.9m Capital Programme for Highways and Transportation in 2019/20, along with a Welsh Government grant allocated for the 2019/20 financial year and the works will last around four weeks.
Traffic management deployed by the contractor will include closing a section of Cross Street to utilise phased lane closures and two-way traffic lights on the B4275. Works will be carried out during normal working hours and the use of temporary traffic signals will avoid peak hours in order to minimise any disruption.
Service 3 (Penrhiwceiber-Cefnpennar) operated by Globe Coaches will be unable to serve Woodfield Terrace for the duration of the Cross Street closure – and will operate via Penrhiwceiber Road to and from Cefnpennar and Mountain Ash until the scheme is complete.
