Speed restriction on the A470 link bridge between Abercynon and Nelson (A472 Fiddlers Elbow viaduct)

Mae'r ymateb i'r cais hwn yn hwyr iawn. Yn ôl y gyfraith, ym mhob amgylchiad, dylai Cyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Rhondda Cynon Taf fod wedi ymateb erbyn hyn. (manylion). Gallwch gwyno drwy yn gofyn am adolygiad mewnol.

Dear Rhondda Cynon Taff Council,

I would like all recorded information regarding the speed restriction on this particular bridge. Your website stated on Friday 5th September 2014 that
"Motorists and residents are being advised that there is likely to be some minor delays and inconvenience as a result of a temporary speed restriction of 20mph being introduced and a “speed hump” style ramp being installed until permanent works can be carried out.

The works follow on from emergency survey works that were carried out, which have highlighted the need for repairs on this major bridge. It is anticipated that the permanent works will be carried out in Spring 2015."

This work has yet to be started yet the speed humps that are in place are too high and are damaging vehicles that have to drive over them.

The information I require specifically is:-

1. The reasons behind why there has been a delay to these roadworks.
2. Any information on the speed humps themselves and the approvals to make them as high as they are as I'm sure the height of these speed humps exceeds the maximum height that they can go to.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Ritchie

Dear Mr Ritchie

I refer to your Freedom of Information Request in respect of the A470 link bridge between Abercynon and Nelson.

Whilst RCT Council has provided information on it's website in respect of the speed limits imposed on the bridge, the design and implementation of the speed ramps has been undertaken by Merthyr Tydfil CBC. Therefore, RCT Council does not hold the information you have requested and you will have to redirect your request to Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council who hold the information. You may do this by using the following email address: [email address].

As you may be aware you have a right of appeal against this decision. If you wish to exercise this right please set out in writing your grounds and send your appeal to the Council's Principal Democratic Services Officer. Her name is Mrs Christine Macey and she may be reached at [email address] or on 01443 424076.

Yours sincerely

Dear Gummer, Claire,

So why didn't you say that I need to contact merthyr council in the first place instead of wasting my time??

Yours sincerely,

Mark Ritchie

Dear Gummer, Claire,

Well I will ask that you kindly forward this FOI request onto them then so they can process it.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Ritchie

Dear Mr Ritchie

This is something I cannot do. You will have to submit your FOI request to Merthyr Tydfil CBC yourself, as they are a separate public body to RCT CBC.

I have provided you with the email address in my response below.

Yours sincerely
