CARDIFF BAY BARRAGE TO BE CLOSED TO WALKERS AND CYCLISTS NEXT WEEK

Scores of cyclists and walkers use the Cardiff Bay Barrage to get to Cardiff and back to Penarth every day – but for two days next week they’ll have to take a different route

Walkers and cyclists will be unable to cross the Cardiff Bay Barrage locks during maintenance operations on  two days next week – Tuesday March 13th and Wednesday March 14th.

Cardiff Bay Barrage will be closed to the public next Tuesday and Wednesday between 08.30 and 16:00 .

Extensive maintenance is going on both in the locks – where gate seals are being replaced – and on the bascule bridges which lift sections of roadway to enable high-masted vessels s to pass beneath

The walkway will be open from the Bay side as far as the Fish Pass, and the play area and skate park will be available – but there will be no access to and from the Penarth side. The Barrage Locks will be operating as normal for vessel movements. Cardiff Harbour Authority says it would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
