Map showing Afon Cynon plans.

What we’re doing

  • moving utilities
  • building a bridge over the Afon Cynon and Vale of Neath railway line
  • building an underpass at Court Farm
  • building a new bridge over the A465 at Pentwyn Cynon
  • laying new road

We will build new structures to allow the A465 to pass over the Afon Cynon, Court Farm access and Vale of Neath railway.

The structures and road will be built in two halves starting with the westbound section of road.

When all traffic is moved onto the westbound section of road, we will build the eastbound structures and road.

Pentwyn Cynon bridge will be built over the new road for Non-Motorised Users (NMUs).

Current progress

We have:

  • cleared vegetation ready for work to start

Next steps

  • Summer 2021 to summer 2022: we will build the half of the Court Farm underpass that is within the westbound section of new road (south of the current road).
  • Summer 2021 to summer 2022: we will build the half of the Afon Cynon bridge that is within the westbound section of new road (south of the current road).
  • Autumn 2021 to summer 2022: we will build the half of the Vale of Neath bridge that is within the westbound section of new road (south of the current road).
  • Spring 2022: we will build the embankment, install drainage barriers, fencing and lighting and lay surfacing for the new road.
