The multi-million pound Cross Valley Link commenced in Summer of 2018 and will see a 60-metre road bridge built from Cwm Cynon Industrial Estate to Miskin Road which will provide a vital new link for traffic travelling between the A4059 and B4275. The project has been a long term-aspiration for the Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and residents. The Project will reach a significant milestone at the end of September 2019 as the main beams to the bridge deck are being lifted and placed . The bridge deck is then programmed to be complete by the end of 2019. The project is due for completion in the middle of 2020.
