Remembrance Sunday 2020
This year our act of commemoration was slightly different. As we are not able to all gather at the War Memorial, we broadcast the ceremony via YouTube. If you were not able to join at the time, this is now available to watch again..
To show that the village is together in remembering the fallen, even though we are dispersed, we are asking everyone to either take a photo of their visit to the war memorial or to make their own poppy (draw, colour or collage) and share a picture of this with email@example.com so that we can build a collage on this website and share our acts of remembrance at this difficult time. Some of these pictures have now been added to the homepage gallery but there is still time to add yours
Roadworks on Heol Isaf
The web team understand that the work scheduled for the three sites on Heal Isaf to install new crossings should now have been completed – although we are seeking confirmation of this from Cardiff Council.
What details the Web Team have been able to gather about this scheme of works has been added to our article on these roadworks and we will continue our hunt for further confirmation.
Llantrisant Road Roadworks
Changes to the Heol Isaf junction with Llantrisant Road are now complete. The roundabout has been replaced by a four-way signal controlled junction and the carriageway has been widened to create new dedicated bus and cycle lanes.
The next phase of work along Llantrisant Road will include the removal of Clos Parc Radur’s roundabout, a 4-way signal junction and widening of the road at this point for new pedestrian walkways, bus and cycle lanes. Plasdŵr estimate that this work will start in January 2021 and be complete by Summer 2022.
We are aware that businesses are responding to the wider Coronavirus situation in different ways. We are updating our Directory as new information is received.
Christ Church, Radyr and St John’s, Danescourt resume their normal timetable of public worship following the firebreak. In-person acts of worship at Radyr Methodist Church remain suspended for the time being, but services and bible studies have moved online.
Details of Christmas services for each church have now been added to the website diary.
The Welsh Government has made it a legal requirement to wear a three-layer, non-medical, face covering on public transport, which includes taxis. While the vast majority of people will be able to wear a face covering, some will be exempt. These include children under the age of 11 years old, and people with certain medical conditions. A full list of exemptions can be found in the Welsh Government Coronavirus FAQs.
From Monday 9 November, Cardiff Bus return to a full timetable which includes the extended evening journeys from Danescourt to Radyr and one extra evening journey from Radyr to the city centre from Monday to Saturday. On Mondays to Saturdays, the additional buses will run at 19:05 & 20:05 from the city centre to Radyr/Morganstown and at 20:43 from Morganstown/Radyr to the city centre. Here is a link to the new substantive 63 timetable.
At present, the railway north of Radyr station is closed from 20.00 each evening, with bus replacement services in operation. This is to allow Transport for Wales teams of engineers to work through the night on lineside and infrastructure improvements to the railway for the South Wales Metro. The normal train timetable will continue to run between Cardiff Central and Radyr until close of service.
Radyr Library reopened on Monday 13 July as part of the phased return of services from hubs and libraries. Customers can access the new click and collect library service from all these facilities, as well as a range of advice services at the hubs such as Into work, housing, benefits and money advice, when enquiries cannot be dealt with over the phone or email. Green recycling and food waste bags can be collected too, without the need for an appointment. Find out more about the click and collect library service on the Cardiff Council website.
