A section of Avenue de Clichy will be closed to the public for one day on 16 July to allow a crane to remove the old River Taff footbridge linking Merthyr Leisure Village, Rhydycar and the town centre.
The new bridge has been in place for several weeks but has been unable to be opened until Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water diverted sewers attached to the old bridge.
The former bridge, which had height restrictions and was too narrow for pedestrians and cyclists to pass one another, is being replaced as part of the Council’s Active Travel improvements programme funded by Welsh Government, in partnership with Transport for Wales.
Avenue de Clichy will be closed for 12 hours from 6am, with diversions in place – please see plans here.
