Bridge repairs will see part of Cardiff’s Caerphilly Road closed at night

Work to strengthen Caerphilly Road Railway Bridge is set to begin at the end of March, with a diversion route put in place for motorists to use while the works take place.

The bridge, which is owned by Transport for Wales, requires remedial work to ensure that the structure is safe.

During the works, night-time road closures will be put in place on Caerphilly Road (A469) between Ty-Wern and Waun-Y-Groes Avenue on the following times and dates:

  • From 8pm on March 25th until 5am on March 26th
  • From 8pm on April 1st until 5am on April 2nd
  • From 8pm on April 15th until 5am on April 16th
  • From 8pm on April 22nd until 5am on April 23rd
  • From 8pm on April 29th until 5am on April 30th
  • From 8pm on May 6th until 5am on May 7th
  • From 8pm on May 13th until 5am on May 14th
  • From 8pm on May 20th until 5am on May 21st
  • From 8pm on May 27th until 5am on May 28th

For all motor vehicles that are under 14.9 ft in height, a signed diversion route will be put in place via Heathwood Road, Fidlas Road, Ty-Glas Avenue and Ty-Glas Road.

For any vehicles that are above this height restriction, a signed diversion route will be put in place via Ty-Wern Road, Pant-Bach Road, Beulah Road and back onto Caerphilly Road

It understood that the work on the railway bridge will be completed and re-opened in early June.
