UPDATE: We have now been made aware that the works have been delayed again. Heol Isaf (B4262 | Gelynis Terrace | Ty Nant Road) will be closed to all traffic where the first crossing is being installed near the junction with Heol Syr Lewis from 09.00 until approx 16.00 on Sunday 18 October 2020.
Roadworks on Heol Isaf
The Roadworks on Heol Isaf have moved on to the site near Ty Mynydd Close where works will last 3 weeks to prepare for the new crossing at this location. We suspect this will result in a full road closure for resurfacing at this site on Sunday 25 October – but this is yet to be confirmed.
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 information.

Due to the Welsh Firebreak lockdown, most businesses in Radyr & Morganstown will be closed from 18.00 on Friday 23 October for 17 days.
We are aware that businesses are responding to the firebreak and 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 are temporarily closed for public worship during the firebreak but online worship will continue. Public acts of worship at Radyr Methodist Church remain suspended for the time being but services and bible studies have moved online.
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.
Due to the firebreak lockdown, Cardiff Bus have published a temporary timetable for the period from Saturday 24 October 2020.
From Saturday 17 October, Cardiff Bus have extended the last two evening journeys from Danescourt to Radyr and with one extra evening journey from Radyr to the city centre from 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.
