A new one-way traffic system will be introduced in Bargoed on Monday September 21 as part of council works to regenerate the town centre.
The new one way system will start at the bus station at Hanbury Square, then then continues along Hanbury Road and High Street to the new mini roundabout at the entrance to St Gwladys pay and display car park at the northern end of the town.
Caerphilly County Borough Council has said the move will improve traffic flow, ease congestion and allow wider pavements for shoppers.
Councillor Rob Gough, cabinet member for transportation and planning, said: “Local people will know that Bargoed is undergoing major changes at the moment and the whole town centre is being transformed thanks to our ambitious regeneration works.
“The investment that has been made in Angel Way has removed the need for much of the traffic through the town centre, providing an opportunity to introduce changes to the shopping centre to make it more pedestrian friendly.”
The final part of the Angel Way scheme will be completed on Friday when a link road connecting the main Angel Way route to the Bowen Industrial Estate at the southern end of Aberbargoed.
The 2.2km route connects the communities of Bargoed, Aberbargoed and Gilfach and forms part of a wider regeneration scheme.
Final works on the Park and Ride site and the new bus station are due to be completed next month.
