Road to close 10 weeks
A POPULAR road connecting Mountain Ash and Ferndale via the Llanwonno mountain route is set to close for 10 weeks due to tree felling works.
The unnamed route, which connects Pleasant View and the Brynfynnon Pub, will close while Euroforest Ltd removes infected trees near the highway.
The closure will begin on February 26 with works due for completion by early May.
According to Rhondda Cynon Taf council, the diversion will take drivers from Brynfynnon Pub via Pen-y-Wal, Rock Terrace, Old Ynysybwl Road, Heol-y-Mynach and Pleasant View.
Access for pedestrians and emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout the duration of the closure.
