Merthyr Tydfil CBC has been advised that on Saturday 7th September 2019 ‘Yes Cymru’ will be marching through Merthyr Tydfil.
It is estimated that around 5,000 people will be in attendance so – for public safety – it is necessary for several road closures to be put in place.
Roads will be closed from 11.45am and the march will start at 12 noon from Penderyn Square, through Avenue De Clichy, Joseph Parry Way, Nantygwenith Street, Dixon Street and return to Penderyn Square, via Avenue De Clichy and the back of the Civic Centre. Upon their return to Penderyn Square there will be speakers from the Redhouse balcony and, as a result, High Street will also be closed to vehicles from 1.45pm until approximately 3.30pm.
We hope that disruption will be kept to a minimum and as soon as the last person passes the closure it will be reopened to vehicles.
Advice to taxis during Yes Cymru march:
The taxi rank in Wheatsheaf Lane will still be open and Traffic Management operatives will temporarily allow vehicles to turn right at Lloyd’s Bank whilst High Street is closed. Traffic using Glebeland Street will be able to do the same. Taxis will also be able to use the local diversions around town.
Thank you for your cooperation.
