Closure of Bay Edge Walkway – Monday 27 November to Friday 8 December

The Bay Edge Walkway from Porth Teigr to the Environment Building (next to the skate park on Cardiff Bay Barrage) will be closed from Monday 27 November to Friday 8 December for improvements, with no public access.

Funded by Welsh Government and Cardiff Council, the development work will widen the walk and cycleway to seven metres. This will enhance the path and improve usability for the up to 150,000 people who cross the Barrage every month.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury said: “The decision to expand the Bay walkway comes in response to feedback to improve the pathway, which forms part of the Wales Coast Path and Bay Trail.

“Unfortunately, there can be no public access whilst the work is carried out for safety reasons. Access to the site will only be available to contractors. Hopefully, giving a month’s notice of the works will give all users of the walkway enough time to plan alternative routes. The skate park, play area and public toilets will remain open, accessible from the Penarth side of the Barrage.

“These improvements will also provide visitors with easier access to the leisure attractions along Cardiff Bay Barrage, as well as the event site for the Volvo Ocean Race, which stops in Cardiff in May 2018 for two weeks.”

Please note, the entire Barrage path from Porth Teigr to the car park on the Penarth side will be closed on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 November, for essential maintenance. The skate park, play area and public toilets will not be accessible on these two days. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
