Poor Driving Conditions

One of the reasons we chose to move to Pontypridd was that it’s got excellent road and rail links, including the impressive A470 trunk road. But on Saturday, the recent and unseasonable winter weather turned both the A470 and its predecessor (renumbered the A4054) into snow-bound car parks for the morning.

    Hi Stuart,
    I live in Cardiff and my parents live in Merthyr. Have no way of getting to them as my road looks worse than this. Car totally snowed in and not much time left for xmas shopping. For once I think that Cardiff may be worse than Ponty!!!

    Hi There,
    I too live in Cardiff and we are totally snowed in as well.
    I live in Rhiwbina and so no one is using the roads because they are mostly old so snow is still pretty deep.
    Used to live in Treforest and I expected it to be worse than that. It seems that my street in Cardiff may be worse than yours, sadly.
