The Gallery | £57M Cardiff link road opens

Photos showing a new £57M link road in Cardiff, Wales have been released ahead of its opening later today.

The East Bay dual carriageway was built by a joint venture between Dawnus and Ferrovial Agroman. Construction started in March 2016 and the project has finished on time and to budget.

As the road connects two roundabouts when passing through Cardiff Docks, two existing roads of around 750m have been reconstructed.

Named after the late engineer and planner Ewart Parkinson, the 1km link road will create better connections to the Cardiff Bay area and ease congestion for commuters.

“Improving infrastructure and transport links, reducing journey times and creating jobs has been a long term commitment for my Government and this major project is another example of how we are delivering on those promises,” said Welsh first minister Carwyn Jones.
