Noticeboard

  • Chain Submission Deadline

    Don’t forget that the deadline for submissions to the February edition of the Radyr Chain is fast approaching. Materials must be with the editor by Friday 15 January 2021… Also make sure you are sending items to the correct address Chain@radyr.org.uk as the old @talktalkbusiness.net address is no longer valid for Chain Submissions and submissions sent to this address will not be received.

  • COVID-19 Alert

    This is a COVID-19 alert from Cardiff Council – Please take note
    Cases in Cardiff are rising fast – Important information / Rhybudd COVID-19 – Mae achosion yng Nghaerdydd yn cynyddu’n gyflym – Gwybodaeth bwysig

  • Waste and recycling collection

    Monday 18 January: Black bins, green recycling sacks and brown food waste caddies.

    Monday 25 January: Green recycling sacks and brown food waste caddies.

    Garden waste collections are currently suspended over the winter. Radyr & Morganstown had its special January collection, so the next Green bin collection will be in March 2021.

    The blue bin glass collection scheme remains suspended, please include all glass in your green recycling bags.

    See Cardiff Council’s website for the latest information about future collection dates or to order a delivery of green recycling bags whilst Radyr Library remains closed.

  • Public Transport

    From 20 December 2020, when Wales entered level 4 restrictions, all people must stay at home, except for very limited purposes. This also means that public transport should only be used for essential journeys, for example for caring responsibility or for work purposes where people cannot work from home.

    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.

    Transport for Wales (TfW) have announced that, due to the expected drop in passenger numbers during the Level 4 restrictions, from Sunday 3 January until Sunday 17 January buses will replace trains for all rail services north of Radyr to allow an increase in the level of maintenance work on all lines north of Radyr station. Radyr station is being used as an interchange between bus and train so rail replacement buses will be travelling in and out of this station all day every day. A normal service is expected to run South from Radyr into Cardiff on both lines.

    Cardiff Bus has now returned to a full timetable following the Christmas and New Year amendments. Here is a link to the substantive 63 bus timetable.

  • Radyr Library

    Radyr Library was closed again from 21 December by Cardiff Council to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

    Some library services including the popular “Click & Collect” can be accessed from the 4 central hubs that remain open by making an appointment. More information can be found on the Library Facebook page.

    The Web Team are seeking clarity on local  access to be able to collect green recycling and food waste bags whilst our local library is closed.

  • Railway works in Radyr & Morganstown

    Transport for Wales (TfW) is due to start on electrifying the Valleys Lines, with significant work centred on the Mound Field in Morganstown and also at Radyr Station.  For more information on this work, including details of some of the concerns, visit the Community Council site, where there is also a questionnaire to express your opinions.

    TfW has also issued this Newsletter, which has been delivered to residents in Morganstown in December.

    The RMA held a Q&A Session with TfW representatives on 16 November 2020 as a part of the consultation process.

  • Development of the Local Development Plan

    The Community Council is seeking help with forming a response to the next Cardiff Local Development Plan (LDP). For details, view the Community Council article on the LDP.

  • 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.

  • Coronavirus Alerts

    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.

  • Royal Mail disruption

    The Cardiff North West Delivery Office is closed following the flooding caused by storm Dennis. Over Christmas, the Web Team have learned that this is now to become a permanent closure. We are still seeking further information from Royal Mail on what implications this has for our access to postal services.

    Can we remind you that collecting packages from Lisvane Sorting Office is not your only option. You can also phone up and arrange for re-delivery at a time that is mutually convenient, or even arrange to collect the package from Radyr Post Office. The more people who request these services the more evidence we will have to re-instate a more local Sorting Office.

    Full details of the effects of this closure can be seen in our article on the after-effects of the storm.
