From Monday 24th March ABB and their contractors Balfour Beatty Utility Services will put a two way traffic light system in place on Fourteenth Avenue, Hirwaun Industrial Estate for approximately six weeks.
In addition two way traffic lights will be in place along Rhigos Road on the hair pin bend near to Tower Colliery on 28th March.
The work is for the excavation of a trench for the cable connection to connect the wind farm to the power grid. The work area will progress from Fourteenth Avenue onto Main Avenue to the roundabout, leading out of the Industrial Estate heading up the A4061 Rhigos Road which is expected to run from April 2014 to October 2015. The section of road covered by the two-way traffic lights will move as the work progresses. We will continue to post updates on this blog, Twitter and Facebook.
