What we’re doing
- building a retaining wall
- building a link road

We will build 2 bridges to allow the junction on this road to pass over the A465.
We will build walls either side of the road to support the slip roads.
We will widen the existing road between the Prince Charles Hospital and Dowlais junctions.
We will build a new bridge at Bryniau road to provide access to Galon Uchaf.
We will move utilities to allow the new road to be built, including 2 large water mains.
- cleared vegetation ready for work to start
- investigated the location of the existing utilities beneath the ground
- put up temporary fencing
