Network Rail will soon be carrying out modification work to the railway through and around the Ty Mawr Road Overbridge area.
What are the works involved?
The core part of this work will include the closure of Ty Mawr Road to vehicles and pedestrians from 00:30 Sunday the 5th of June until 12:30 Sunday 5th June 2016
How does this affect me?
As you can understand, Network Rail has a responsibility, to where possible, keep the passenger services running on time and uninterrupted. Unfortunately, this does mean undertaking some work at night and at weekends.
Network Rail employees and contractors are briefed to keep all unnecessary noise to a minimum whilst works are undertaken but, due to machines and tools used, some noise will be experienced.
For those living close to the railway, engineering work can be noisy – but we do our best to keep noise and disruption to a minimum. We use a range of measures to ensure this, including requiring our employees and contractors to behave considerately towards people who live and work near the railway, positioning lighting and generators away from homes and using silenced equipment where possible
When will the work take place?
00:30 Sun 5th June – 12:30 Sun 5th June 2016
22.40 Sun 6th June – 04:55 Mon 6th June 2016 then nightly Mon 6th June 2016 –Friday 10th June 2016 between 23:05 – 05:15
Safety is our number one priority and for this reason, certain works must be carried out while trains are not running. Therefore some of the work at the site will be undertaken at night.
Network Rail is working to deliver a bigger, better railway for Wales and the border counties. Passenger numbers are set to grow further and this means that we need continue investing to meet this record demand. Our projects include electrification, new signalling technology and improved stations. This investment will bring a number of benefits for passengers as well as helping to support the growth of the local economy .
Please allow us to apologise for the inconvenience that these works may cause.
