The Mountain Ash Cross Valley Link (MASCVL) project concerns the design and construction of a 2-way, 3 lane link road and road bridge extending from the Cwm Cynon Industrial Estate Access Road from the A4059 to the B4275 Miskin Road, Mountain Ash. The structure is a two span Bridge spanning 65m across the Cynon River and Cardiff/Aberdare single track railway, supported on rotary bored piles and reinforced earth abutments. This a key project which will improve accessibility and connectivity in an area where limited cross valley linkage causes significant congestion on the local and strategic transport network affecting all highway users, including commercial delivery services and public transport.

Upon arrival, we will go through a presentation about our project and then have a look at the works from the Public Viewing Platform on the Eastern Embankment. We will then take you across to the Western Embankment for a site walk to see some of the construction operations up close. You will have opportunitites to ask questions throughout the visit.

Come straight up the A470 from Cardiff towards Merthyr. Once you get to the Abercynon roundabout, take the first exit and continue until you reach some traffic lights as you enter Mountain Ash. At the traffic lights, turn left and you will see our main site compound (ten white stacked cabins).

If you are arriving by train, we are about a 10 minutes walk from the station. If you take the public footpath through the park, along the River Cynon and then up Cardiff Road, you'll find us.
