One of Penarth’s busiest, but narrowest and most congested road arteries, Plymouth Road, is to be resurfaced over the next two weeks, starting on September 10th 2018.
Residents living along Plymouth Road have already been sent letters by the Vale of Glamorgan Council about the forthcoming resurfacing – but others who use the route regularly may not be aware of the forthcoming fortnight of road works.
Plymouth Road will be closed between the junction of Raisdale Road and Stanwell Road between the hours of 09:30 and 16:00 whilst work is in progress. Vehicle access will be for “residents only” – and there could be delays even for them.
People who park their cars on Plymouth Road are being asked not to park on the road between 09.30 to 16:00 from next Monday for the next two weeks – a necessity which is likely to put pressure on parking spaces elsewhere in the vicinity.
Plymouth road will remain open to pedestrians throughout the two weeks of the re-surfacing programme.
The long-awaited resurfacing of Plymouth Road – a critical route neglected by the previous Labour administration in the Vale Council – has come about by what PDN understands has been “intense lobbying” by Vale Conservative Plymouth Ward councillors Ben Gray and Kathryn McCaffer.
The Vale Council is hoping it will have the co-operation of local residents and say says “Every effort will be made to keep any inconvenience to a minimum , however due to the nature of the works some noise and disruption will be inevitable”
