Five Mile lane to close Northbound for 12 weeks from January 7th

Work on a new improved Five Mile Lane (A4226) is progressing – with the road on schedule to open next summer.

Once completed, users will benefit from reduced journey times, while businesses are set to be boosted by better transport links between Culverhouse Cross and Cardiff Airport and St Athan Enterprise Zone.

Preparatory works for the £25 million scheme, including some land clearance, began in early 2018 and the site compound from which the scheme will be managed was put in place in March.

As the works continues, approximately half a mile of the current road will need to be closed in a northbound direction only from the Weycock Cross roundabout to the Welsh Hawking Centre for a period of 12 weeks from January 07 2019.

A fully-signed diversion route will be in place during the period of the closure. Residents and the travelling public will be kept fully informed of the situation.

Southbound traffic along Five Mile Lane (A4226) will be unaffected by this closure.

Leader of the Vale Of Glamorgan Council, Councillor John Thomas said: “Once completed, this project will have a big impact not just on motorists who use the route, but also on the local business community. The upgraded road will also bring improved public transport options and a safe cycling route.

There will be some disruption while this essential work is carried out, with a section of the current road needing to be shut for a period. We will endeavour to keep this to a minimum and would ask motorists to plan ahead and for their patience and understanding during these periods.”
