Road closures in Mountain Ash

Alternative bus timetables will be in place next month as part of important road works in Mountain Ash.

Oxford Street in the town will be closed from its junction with Pryce Street to its junction with Henry Street from 6am to 6pm every Sunday from September 13 until work is completed.

As a result of this work, southbound traffic will be diverted via Pryce Street, High Street and Darren Road onto the unaffected part of Oxford Street.

Northbound traffic will follow the diversion via Darren Road, High Street, Graig Street and Duffryn Street onto Commercial Street.

During the road closure, the following bus journeys will be re-timed:

  • 0900, 1030 and 1345 X6 journeys from Aberdare to Cardiff will depart 5 minutes earlier.
  • 1545 X6 journey from Aberdare to Cardiff will depart 5 minutes later.
  • 1307 X6 journey from Pontypridd to Aberdare will depart 10 minutes earlier.
  • 1645 X6 journey from Cardiff to Pontypridd will operate 10 minutes later as a result of the delays caused.
  • The number 25 service between Pontypridd, Ynysybwl and the Fernhill Estate will have slightly longer journey times but no changes to the timetable.

Cllr Andrew Morgan, Cabinet Member for Customer Care and Highways, said: "This is important renewal and repair work in Mountain Ash.

"As a result of the ongoing regeneration of the town, new road surfaces were laid which, unfortunately, failed in certain parts of Oxford Street.

"While this repair work is taking place, we have taken the opportunity to complete other in another part of Oxford Road to minimise disruption. Residents and traderss may remember previous repair works to the top surface of the tarmac, which has now resulted in a need for us to strengthen the base of the road.

"We have to get this work to the road done and, as a result, there will be closures. We know this will cause inconvenience, but we urge motorists and passengers to bear with us as we work on their behalf. I also urge them to make contact if there are any issues or concerns."
