Rhoose Sustainable Transport Scheme
The Council has secured Section 106 funding, which can be used for sustainable transport purposes, from the Taylor Wimpey development accessed via Porthkerry Road.
The Section 106 agreement states that the sustainable transport contribution has to be spent on information, facilities, services or projects which provide or improve access for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users in Rhoose.
The Council has identified the following improvements and would like to capture residents' views on the proposed scheme.
Provide a footway/cycleway along the west of Station Road between Rhoose Cardiff International Train Station and the T-junction with Fontygary Road;
Provide parking bays along Station Road to improve the safety of pedestrians/cyclists travelling along Station Road as cars currently park on grass verge;
Improve the width of the footpaths between the development site entrance on Porthkerry Road, to the roundabout junction at Porthkerry Road/Rhoose Road/Readers Way.
Provide cycling infrastructure off the carriageway where appropriate and possible, between the site entrance and Rhoose Cardiff International Train Station;
Upgrade the footpaths outside of Rhoose Primary School and Rhoose Library.
Please note, the contribution cannot be used for pot holes or improvements to private vehicular related journeys, however, as part of the scheme the Council's maintenance team will be resurfacing parts of Fontygary Road, including the stretch outside of the school.
The Council anticipates that this scheme will be delivered, in phases, throughout the 2020/21 financial year.
It is recognised that this project focuses upon the key routes to the east of Rhoose. The Council would like to improve walking and cycling infrastructure to the west of Rhoose, particularly the western half of Fontygary Road. As and when more money becomes available, works will be undertaken to improve walking and cycling infrastructure along the whole of Fontygary Road, however, this will depend upon additional monies becoming available.
The drawings below show the locations of the proposed works.
