Construction of a new multi million pound retail development has begun in Bargoed, where the supermarket chain Morrisons will be creating a 56,000 sq. ft. 'store of the future'.
Caerphilly County Borough Council and contractor Simons are giving residents and commuters advance warning of the essential utility works that will be set to take place this summer, in order to bring this exciting enterprise to life.
It is anticipated that traffic will be disrupted on Hanbury Road for only one day in May, in order to lay necessary telecommunication cables and that road closures will be undertaken for five days over a weekend in August for the works regarding the sewage systems required for the site.
Once the utility work is completed, the construction will move to the area of the site, which will be inside hoarding and therefore additional road closures are not envisaged.
The anchor store Morrisons are bringing to Bargoed will help to create a development plateau in the heart of the town centre. The new store will incorporate Morrisons full range of goods and services while also bringing to Bargoed the latest Morrisons interior layout, one of the first to be rolled out in Wales.
The Morrisons development will be complemented by a variety of mixed-use retail units of 20,500 sq. ft. together with a 400 space car park.
Bargoed will remain open for business throughout these essential works.
