Abercynon Town Centre – Proposed changes to the traffic system

Abercynon Town Centre – Proposed One Way system and 20 MPH Speed Limit.

As residents may be aware, the Council has previously consulted on proposals to change CachedImage.axd-6the traffic system through Abercynon town centre. These works changes include alterations to Station Road and Margaret Street to assist the flow of traffic on the proposed arrangements.

Further to this, this council have also drafted plans to introduce a new 20 MPH speed limit to cover the entirety of Carnetown and Glancynon.

Following the recent consultation and based on the feedback received, a number of changes have been made to the proposed scheme including the removal of the one way section at the top end of Herbert Street, the reversal of the one way section on Walter Street, the extension of the bus stop cage on Ynysymeurig Road and the inclusion of Park View into the 20 MPH speed limit.

The proposed plans can be views here.  

The next stage is a period of Public Notice of the proposals, where details of the scheme are advertised to provide an opportunity for members of the public to formally raise any comments they may have.

If you wish to comment on the proposals, you should do so in writing by 13 January 2020, to the Traffic Services Manager, Traffic Management, Sardis House, Sardis Road, Pontypridd CF37 1DU or alternatively by email: trafficservices@rctcbc.gov.uk

We encourage all residents to take a look at the new traffic system plans and submit your views.

Y.G.G Abercynon School Pupils join us on community litter pick

School pupils from Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg joined us this month to carry out a litter pick IMG_4318the Park Road Path between River Row and Abercynon Sports Centre.

The pupils are members of the school’s Council and Eco-Council and are passionate about cleaning up and protecting our local environment. Their enthusiasm for all things green was very clear for all to see. This litter pick follows another successful event in the summer with pupils from Abercynon Community School. We think that our children’s desire to care for our environment is very inspiring.

We would like to thank the pupils and headteacher Mr Pugh-Evans for joining us on the litter pick. We organise litter picks and community clean-up days throughout the year and residents are always welcome to join us.

Keep and eye out for our next clean-up day.
