Gabalfa Interchange Pilot Improvement Works
A programme of improvements works will begin at the Gabalfa Interchange on Monday August 5th.
The aim of the scheme is to improve the road layout and to make the roundabout safer for all road users. You may wish to use an alternative route or revise journey times while work is on going.
The works will be undertaken in three separate pilot stages and, subject to the success of the experiment; the concluding stage will be the introduction of the final scheme layout in a permanent form.
The stages will be as follows:
Pilot Stage 1 – Implement temporary 30mph speed limits. Install temporary mandatory 30mph signs and advisory 20mph signs. A widening of the road on three corners so that there is space for larger vehicles. Create a dedicated left turn lane at the northwest corner (A48 to A470).
Pilot Stage 2 – Approximately three to four weeks after pilot stage 1 is completed, and subject to the findings of the stage 1 experiment, create a dedicated left turn lane at the northeast corner (A470 to A48).
Pilot Stage 3 – Approximately three to four weeks after pilot stage 2 is completed, and subject to the findings of the stage 1 and 2 experiments, create a dedicated left turn lane at the southwest corner (A470 to A48), and a dedicated left exit from the roundabout, southbound onto North Road (A470). Alterations will be made to the bus/traffic priority next to the bus-stops on the south-west access from North Road onto the roundabout.
The work is being launched in the school holidays and the works will mostly take place at night to reduce disruption to motorists.
