Anyone remember this?

Last year didn’t the council say they might place a temporary bridge over the River Cynon at this point? But it's Cynon Valley's top end so there is no temporary bridge then.


2018 Cadw officers visited the Trecynon Iron Trambridge on 5th June 2018 with representatives of Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to inspect the structure and consider conservation works.  The bridge was in a seriously poor condition and actively deteriorating.  Issues discussed during the site visit included lost and displaced masonry from the abutments, cracked ironwork, vegetation growing on the structure, undermining of the structure caused by erosion (associated with riverbed erosion at this location) and potential impacts of the storm drain.

The council report that in February 2022 to coincide with the two-year anniversary of Storm Dennis, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has provided a detailed update on the ongoing infrastructure repairs of the Iron Tram Bridge, Robertstown – Scheduled Monument consent was granted to undertake repairs, which are currently taking place off-site.

And it is still ongoing.
