Cathays Improvement Scheme - Urgent Update
Works to re-commence at Cathays
Improvement works on the road end closures will re-commence on site on Thursday 7 May, 2020.
The principal contractors, Horan Construction, have now put the necessary safety mechanisms in place to allow their staff to safely continue with the proposed works.
This project has been prioritised under the new Neighbourhood Renewal Scheme Programme. The proposal was submitted by Cathays Ward Councillors to provide improvements to selected road end closures that could then accommodate community led environmental projects e.g. planters for flowers and plants to provide habitat for wildlife – in particular, pollinating insects. Additional benefits will be to improve pedestrian and cycle access and the reduction of fly tipping and other forms of anti-social behaviour.
What’s Happening Now?
Cardiff Council held a public consultation in October 2019 to obtain views from the community regarding proposed improvements to three road end closures in Cathays. A lot of positive feedback was received during the consultation session and the plans have been amended to accommodate views and suggestions.
The improvements include:
• Shared surface for pedestrians and cyclists
• New Bollards
Horan have now been appointed as Principle Contractor to carry out the works on behalf of the Council which will commence on the 17th February, with an anticipated duration of 7 weeks.
