Welsh Water has provided an update regarding improvement works at Weycock Cross roundabout, after previously work was cancelled after causing hours of 'traffic chaos' for road users.

The company says it is investing £4 million to upgrade the wastewater system in the Barry area, with the treatment works currently in place at Weycock Cross coming to the end of its operation life.

To create new ways of treating wastewater in Barry the company is planning to lay a new pipe from the treatment works on Five Mile Lane up to Weycock Cross roundabout and Pontypridd Road.

They say the work will enable them to take wastewater from the treatment works to a new gravity sewer, where it will be taken to Cog Moors wastewater treatment works in Dinas Powys.

Work is set to begin on Port Road West junction of Weycock Cross from 11th November for four weeks.

The company aims to minimise disruption in the area by maintaining two way traffic at the junction to Weycock Cross, with staff on site working weekdays between 7am & 6pm and weekend 7:30pm and 4pm to complete the work as soon as possible.

During the period Welsh Water will also be working on the side of the road of the Five Mile Lane A4226 from the Hawking Centre up to Weycock roundabout.

Work on replacing sewer pipes along Pontypridd Road will continue 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Welsh Water says it "would take this opportunity to thank residents for their patience and co-operation while they carry out this essential work."
