Riverside Improvement Scheme - Urgent Update

Following the public health guidance and the updated government warnings regarding Coronavirus, the improvement works to the road enclosures under the Riverside environmental improvement scheme will cease until further notice.

As soon as we are in a position to process with the scheme, we will provide an update.

We offer our sincere apologies for any extended inconvenience this may cause to residents.



This project has been prioritised under the new Neighbourhood Renewal Scheme Programme.  The proposal was submitted by ward members to provide improvements to the road end closures to improve pedestrian and cycle access, with the aim to reduce anti-social behaviour including fly-tipping.

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 Riverside.  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
• Resurfacing
• Bins
• Benches
• Planters
• New bollards

Horan have now been appointed as Principal 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.
