Consultant completes the Angel Way bypass and Retail Development Plateau

The first phase of the £30m Greater Bargoed community regeneration scheme in South Wales has been completed.

Capita Symonds provided a full range of consultancy services including design, project management, construction supervision and contract administration on the Angel Way bypass and Retail Development Platea for client Caerphilly County Borough Council.

The scheme involved the removal of traffic from the congested main streets of Bargoed by construction of a 3km relief road, Angel Way, which enables traffic to bypass the town while providing access to a new retail development.

Ian Smith, project manager at Capita, said: "The first phase of the project to provide the transport infrastructure and retail development plateau is now complete and design work already underway on the next phase to rejuvenate the town centre and provide a new pedestrian link to the bus station.

"The project will revitalise civic pride in the town with the prospect of the new development bringing many new employment opportunities."
