Keeping You Moving Night And Day
With the colder mornings and nights now upon us, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is doing all it can to keep the main roads open and residents moving while on their essential journeys.
This is an unprecedented year, first dealing with the severe floods, followed by the Covid-19 pandemic, which continues to affect all of our lives.
Throughout all of this, Council staff have continued with kerbside collections, street cleansing and highways maintenance and praise and comments have been received from residents of Rhondda Cynon Taf, who appreciate all the work being carried out by dedicated Streetcare teams.
Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, with responsibility for Highways and Streetcare, said: “This is a very difficult year for us all, but throughout all the adversity, our Council staff have been there every step of the way offering as much support as possible to its residents and businesses.
“As we now head into the colder months of the year, it is good to know that support will continue in all of the Council’s service areas, especially Highways as motorists make their essential journeys in all types of weather conditions.”
“But despite our highways being treated with rock salt, it’s important that motorists realise that they still need to take their time and drive safely, according to the winter conditions.
“Just because the road is treated, it doesn’t mean it is skid-proof, and one of the biggest issues our teams face is vehicles overtaking our gritting lorries as they treat the roads.
“We urge all motorists to slow down and be patient and acknowledge the work our crews are doing treating the network on their behalf.”
