Cowbridge Road East Environmental Improvements


Cardiff Council is proposing improvements to the street environment of a section of Cowbridge Road East which is home to a range of local shops and services which are valued by the community. The project forms part of the Council’s Neighbourhood Renewal Schemes Programme, and aims to deliver pedestrian improvements including footway widening and resurfacing, rain gardens/planting and street furniture.

What's Happening Now?

During the public consultation earlier this year we received some excellent suggestions for improvements and we have updated the plans to include:

• Tactile blister paving at every continuous footway crossing point
• Two new trees
• Cycle stands
• Improved signage
• Additional rain garden space

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Cowbridge Road East crossing design competition is Steffan Dafydd. All three designs were excellent and we thank all those who took part

We aim to implement the crossing design later this year!

Next Steps...

Work will soon commence on the wider environmental improvements as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal Scheme. 

Horan will be carrying out the works on behalf of Cardiff Council, commencing on the 22nd March. The project will take approximately 16 weeks to complete.

During this time, a certain amount of disruption is likely to occur, however every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.
