Rhigos mountain road closure

Rhigos mountain road was closed following a landslide due to heavy rainfall yesterday (Sunday, November 1st 2009).

The A4061 which links Treherbert to Hirwaun, will remain closed today (November 2nd 2009) while further inspection to ascertain the stability of the land and the clearance work is carried out.

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Streetcare Team have visited the site of the landslip throughout the day after several tonnes of earth slid onto the road.

Other small incidents of localised flooding have also taken place in Cardiff Road, Aberaman and Sardis Road, Pontypridd. During this period members of the Council’s Streetcare Team have also been clearing culverts to avert further flooding from taking place.
