This petition has now been submitted by Cllr Heledd Fychan to RCT. 

Thank you for your support.

We, the residents of Berw Road and nearby streets, call on Rhondda Cynon Taf Council to urgently address several issues affecting Berw Road, both historically and since the 2020 floods.

These include:

  1. Taking urgent steps to repair the White Bridge, so it can re-open to two-way traffic at the earliest possible opportunity.
  2. Identify ways to lessen air pollution and find solutions to reduce the amount of traffic on the road.
  3. Invest in traffic calming measures and safe pedestrian crossing points, to increase safety for residents.
  4. Ensure all homes that were flooded are provided with flood gates or a flood door from the money allocated to RCT Council from Welsh Government.


Every day, we have to suffer horrendous traffic, air pollution as well as dangerous conditions. We also live in constant fear of flooding. Please listen to our views and improve the safety of our community.

    A bypass is needed, from the A470 to Ynysybwl or Glyncoch

    I totally agree with this petition for Berw Road.Pontypridd. The fumes from traffic using this road and especially in traffic jams, is not acceptable anymore due to the Berw bridge ( White bridge) being closed. Yours Faithfully Mrs SM Smith and Mr JP Smith.
