Demolition works commence
A vacant shop in Caerphilly town centre will be demolished over the coming weeks to allow exciting regeneration plans to progress in future.

Work starts this week on the demolition of the former Specsavers building, located at 25 Cardiff Road, in support of Caerphilly Council’s ambitious development proposals for the town.

It is hoped that plans can then be progressed for a new boutique hotel development on the prime site overlooking the castle in future.

Demolition contractors are already on site preparing the internal work required in preparation for the full demolition of the building in order to support the demolition programme, it has been necessary to instigate a temporary road closure on part of Park Lane. In addition, there will be a temporary removal of the one-way traffic order to facilitate residents and businesses to access and exit from Park Lane.

The road closure and traffic arrangements are due to be installed and effective from Tuesday 8th March and are planned to be in place for a period of approximately 4 weeks until Tuesday 5th April.
