Footpath Closure Extended

The work being undertaken on the Lisvane reservoir valve chamber is taking longer than expected, as it is in a worse state of repair than was anticipated and some bespoke fittings are having to be made to complete the work.  This means that Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water need to extend the closure on the stretch of footpath running behind Rhyd-y-Blewyn Farm and 117 Black Oak Road.  It is now hoped that the path will be re-opened by Christmas.  A letter from Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water has been sent out to local households but can also be accessed by clicking here.

Temporary Footpath Closure

As part of their work to renovate the reservoirs, Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water need to access some of the chambers located along the footpath between the edge of the Lisvane reservoir and Black Oak Road.  In order to carry out the work safely they need to temporarily close the stretch of footpath running behind Rhyd-y-Blewyn Farm and 117 Black Oak Road.  The closure will begin on Monday 2nd October and the work will take 6 weeks to complete.  Further details can be found in the attached letter by clicking here.
