Bridge from Radyr to Hailey Park

The disused railway bridge over the Taff, formerly on a loop line linking the old Radyr Sidings with the Radyr to Queen Street line, is being converted to a footbridge linking the Taff Trail in Hailey Park with the path between Radyr Court Road and the development on Radyr Sidings.

Work began in October and should be complete by early February 2013.

Council Plans to Build 7,500 Homes On Our Doorstep! PDF Print E-mail

Councillors in Cardiff have approved plans for the largest expansion of the city for more than half a century, with 45,400 new homes being built by 2026.

The biggest single proposal is for 7,500 homes in a new suburb west of Pentrebane to Radyr.

Danescourt Community Association are concerned at the proposal and will be pro-active in its objection to building so many homes on its doorstep, creating a new estate on such a scale, having a major impact on those living nearby. We also oppose building on green areas and will vigorously campaign against it. We hope to join other interested parties or groups who are also affected.

Details of the plans and and how to get involved can be found on the Council's website

DCA Campaigns For Speed Indicators PDF Print E-mail

At a recent committee meeting it was decided that the DCA should ask the Council's Highways Department to install 2 speed indicator signs, similar to the one near the scout hall in Radyr, located either side of the school on Danescourt Way.

Our request will offer £500 towards the cost of these signs as a way of the DCA communicating it's support for speed eduction.

Also as suggested at the last PACT meeting the school could, with the support of the PCSO, get the children to carry out a speed exercise a part of the curriculum, and they could write to us with their findings. The school could also be approached to carry out a competition to draw a slow sign. The prize being to have their drawing made into a road sign attached to the new speed sign posts. This would generate good publicity for the school, the speeding problem and a proactive DCA.

If you have any comments on this, or any other matter concerning Danescourt, then please get in touch
