Night-time road works start on Castle Street Cardiff

Road works have started on Castle Street, Cardiff with the aim of re-opening the road to general traffic by the end of October.

While the works take place throughout the night, Castle Street will remain open to taxis and buses to travel one-way, from Cowbridge Road and Westgate Street onto North Road. The works will only take place between 8pm and 6am so during the day Castle Street will remain open to buses and taxis in both directions.

The inbound route travelling from Boulevard de Nantes, south onto North Road, towards Castle Street, will be closed to all traffic, with the exception of the emergency services, where access will be maintained in both directions. While the works take place, the on-site contractor will manage all deliveries to shops and businesses.
