The footbridge by Gelynis Farm will be closed for 3 weeks from the 20th February 2017.
The City of Cardiff Council have sent a letter to residents about the planned works. The construction has been programmed to start on the 20th February 2017, with an anticipated duration of 3 weeks.
The proposed improvement works to be undertaken include:
- The removal of the existing timber walkway and parapets.
- The reconstruction of a replacement pedestrian footway system, using GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) which will provide a more durable construction. The walkway will be widened from 0.9 to 1.5m and the parapets will be raised to 1.8m high adjacent to the water main, and 1.4m high to the northern face of the bridge.
The bridge was closed in March 2015 when damage to the walkway was spotted. Temporary repairs were made and a permanent solution was promised when money was available.
