Connect2 Wins £50 Million

It gives great pleasure to announce that Sustrans Connect2 won their bid for £50 million from the Big Lottery Fund. Sustrans Connect2 is a UK-wide project that will create new cycling and walking routes to improve local travel in 79 communities across the country.

Bridge       Group of People

The Trevithick Trail will benefit from a share of this £50 million, which will go towards building a bridge over the A4060 trunk road in Pentrebach to create a traffic–free route. The bridge will connect the North residential areas of Merthyr Tydfil to Pentrebach to communities further south. It will also provide a link to local supermarkets and workplaces, providing an attractive largely level route into the centre of Merthyr and links to the Taff Trail.

Funding Logos

We are immensely grateful to Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council Trevithick Officers and to everyone who got behind this scheme and took the time to vote to help bring additional funding to the valley.

On behalf of the Trevithick Steering Group and all involved a big thank you for voting!
