Above is a map of the proposed road closure for installation of a gas pipe line.
Below are more documents PCC has received:
Cardiff Council has been in discussion with GTC (Contractors appointed by Persimmon) and DT Civils (sub-contractors who will undertake the work) for the last 8 months looking at various options of constructing the gas pipe in the best way to minimise disruption to the highway. They explored an option that was off the adopted highway through private land but unfortunately concluding the required legal agreement was not possible due to clauses that are likely to result in the gas pipe having to be diverted back into the adopted highway at a future date. Therefore, the only option is to close the road in order to construct the gas pipe in the adopted highway.
The width of the road is too narrow to keep it open and 2-way lights is not an option due to the space available to meet the health and safety requirements for the general public and workforce.
Other connection options within the Creigiau village have also been explored. However, these would have caused an even greater and longer disruption.
Cardiff is liaising with their internal school transport team and arrangements are being made with regards to buses etc. so the children’s education will not be affected.
Cardiff appreciates your concerns but all options have been explored and this is the only safest way of undertaking these works. Persimmon have had bi-monthly meetings with local Cardiff Council members and a public meeting will be held before the major closure is implemented.
