The Cardiff Barrage will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday

The Penarth end of the Cardiff Bay Barrage is to be closed  to the public tomorrow and Wednesday .

The closure will take place from Tuesday 13 November to Wednesday 14 November inclusive between 08.30 and 17:00 hours.

The walkway will be open from the Cardiff Bay side as far as the Fish Pass which means that Café Hafren, the play area and skate park will be available – but there will be no access to or from the Penarth side.

Cardiff Harbour Authority say they would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    The barrage may be used before 8am and after 5pm on either day.

  2. Does anyone have any idea why the barrage will be closed?

  3. Glaring says:

    Off topic, but I was surprised to see Sally Phillips in the brief glimpse I could stomach of BBC Wales’ embarrassing ‘comedy’ Tourist Trap, charting the backroom scenes of a useless quango charged with promoting Welsh tourism.
    Anyway, my point being, would it be possible for licence payers’ money to be used to make a similar ‘fly-on-the-wall’ ‘comedy’ about a self-styled ‘public affairs’ agency, composed of spiteful old hacks paid handsome sums to ‘influence public opinion’.
    For example, they could be shown commenting on local news sites with a variety of aliases, firing off needlessly cruel ripostes to contributors who don’t toe the party line.

      perhaps assisted by (ousted) councillors and other covert wannabes who fancy themselves dab hands at put-downs?
      Sounds tragic!

    • Harry Parfitt says:

      An interesting concept. Can you be more explicit about the “party line” to which you refer?

    • whatsoccurin says:

      Agree-the BBC Wales “take” on Welsh humour is awful-they seem to have put repeats of the excellent “High Hopes” on i-player, so perhaps the feedback to “Tourist Trap” has been somewhat predictable.

    Welsh = Humour ….the Welsh are not known for humour , they have no Comedians of note .the only one that was great was Tommy Cooper and as we know a lot of his was visual humour or slapstick . Another one who attempts humour is Owen Money but when you have to laugh at your own jokes (as he does) to convince the audience it was meant to be funny ,fair enough he does the best he can faced with Welsh indifference and little idea of humour. Take that other ‘so called’ Comedian Max Boyce his material is apparently chronic ,I have seen him on TV once or twice and his jokes were largely or all based around Rugby , so if your not into Rugby at all , you may as well turn him off. My knowledge of any further Welsh attempts are limited , but I agree with the statement I read some time ago that the Welsh lack a sense of humour and I have come up against that wall of misunderstanding , indifference when daring to tell a joke or be witty. And because some have little concept of humour you are immediately classed as , odd , or weird the list goes one ,they assume your at fault when in truth its their lack of humour or being able to grasp when your trying to amuse. No Welsh and humour don’t exist apart from in the slapstick world .

    • Mary says:

      Try Rhod Gilbert.

      • Brass Eye says:

        Or ‘BBC Wales Investigates’ – unwittingly hilarious ‘social reportage’ consisting mainly of an earnest, po-faced ‘journalist’ strutting about in mirrored sunglasses, one hand in the pocket of her palazzo pants.

    • Lou says:

      So the Welsh lack a sense of humour. Rubbish, you’re always good for a laugh.

    • Harry Parfitt says:

      Or Rob Brydon.

    • Mary says:

      Oh and Paul Whitehouse, Rob Bryson the list goes on.

    • whatsoccurin says:

      Generally fair but a bit harsh-Max Boyce was of his time but unfortunately his time was ages ago-Ruth Jones with “Stella” and “Gavin and Stacey” hits the funny bone and Boyd Clack and the late Frank Vickery are spot on with Valleys humour. Owen Money is a decent all-round entertainer. Don’t think the late Ryan Davies will ever be matched and Rhod Gilbert, though amiable is much better in his “work experience” than he is as a comedian.

  5. Duncan McKellar says:

    I notice that they have set up equipment to count the number of cyclists at the Cardiff end of the barrage. That is going to be really effective with the barrage shut for two days.

  6. Frank Evans says:

    Off topic as well.
    Sustrans all over the media today talking about cycle tracks and how barriers should be removed as not to impede cyclists!! Interviewer questioned could this be dangerous to pedestrians.. but it was ignored.
    They only ever do media stuff about cycling. I though they were also in favour of walking but never talk about it.
    Sustrans is to cycle lobby spokes people.

  7. Andrew Worsley says:

    Never heard of him Mary so he must be really famous!!!

  8. Andrew Worsley says:

    Im not Welsh Lou you little ray of sunshine so my words still stand , and your never informative or funny God alone knows why you bother contributing to this forum as all you supply is abuse and putdowns . Do us all a favour sunshine , find something else to do? , maybe pay a rare visit to the pub where you will be in company of the sozzled and incoherent , who probably think your marvellous .

  9. Andrew Worsley says:

    In fact I like to think of Lou as the resident Comedian on this website …………..says nothing of worth or value …….and usually can only manage his usual one or two sentences . As for the other Comedians mentioned , they are ‘exceptions to the rule’ not typical.
