Work to start on Churchill Way to bring back the dock feeder canal

Work to open up the dock feeder canal, part of a wider masterplan to create a new vibrant Canal Quarter in the east of the city centre, will begin on Churchill Way on Monday, February 7.

The works which are scheduled to run for twelve months will see Churchill Way, north of North Edward Street, closed to traffic during that time.

The opening up of the canal will create new, green, public space, with rain gardens to manage surface water drainage, outdoor seating and an amphitheatre-style, outdoor performance area.

The wider masterplan for the Canal Quarter, which includes extending the canal further down to the dock feeder south on Tyndall Street was approved by Cardiff Council's Cabinet in May last year.

This masterplan aims to create a new, vibrant district in the east of the city, interlinking Bridge Street, David Street, Charles Street, Tredegar Street, Guildford Crescent and Barrack Lane to develop a high-density, mixed-use development, attracting homes, hotels, hospitality, high-quality offices, leisure and retail units.

As part of this scheme, Station Terrace can no longer to be used for through traffic. Only taxis and buses will be allowed to use this road in either direction in order to give buses priority to travel in and out of the new bus interchange on the east side of the city when it is completed.

With funding from the City Deal and Welsh Government, significant improvements will be also made to the public realm, with a new cycleway on Station Terrace, wider pavements and improved crossing facilities around Cardiff Queen Street train station, and a new improved junction between Adam Street and Churchill Way.

Public consultation on the first stage of re-opening the canal and the transport scheme took place with residents and businesses before the pandemic began and all of the feedback received was assessed before the final design was agreed.

Cllr Michael Michael, Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Environment and Recycling said: "The opening of the dock feeder canal and the new transport scheme will not only mark the beginning of a new district centre for the city and act as a catalyst for new investment, but it will play an essential role in managing traffic flow and surface water drainage in the city centre.

"A series of rain gardens will be built, with specific soil and planting to treat the surface water to remove pollutants before the water flows into the canal. This will ensure that 3,700 m2of water will be diverted away from the sewage system each year, reducing the cost and energy of treating this water through the sewage pumping station at Cardiff Bay."

This new development and the wider masterplan will bring much-needed jobs during the construction phase, as well as long-term employment opportunities when the scheme is complete.

Public urged to get involved with Cardiff Council Scrutiny Committees

Members of the public are being urged to get involved with local democracy by engaging with the five Cardiff Council scrutiny committees whose members, drawn from a range of political parties, act as a ‘critical friend' to decision and policy makers. 

The call comes as the  Scrutiny Committee pages of the council's website  are re-launched to make it easier for the public to get involved in the work of the committees. 

As well as raising issues with local ward councillors, residents can also contribute by: 

  • identifying issues for scrutiny to look at;
  • providing evidence to inform scrutiny - either in writing or in person;
  • contribute to scrutiny consultations, workshops, and/or focus groups; and
  • be invited to be co-opted to be a member of a Scrutiny Committee.

Chair of the Policy, Review and Performance Scrutiny Committee, Cllr David Walker, said: "Scrutiny Committees are the challenging voice of residents, visitors, commuters and employees, at the decision-making table to ensure full accountability, it's part of our role to help make those voices heard. 

"Committee members are all local ward councillors, drawn from across the party-political spectrum, so they retain a level of independence and are perfectly placed to ask the difficult questions, to the most senior council officers and Cabinet Members. 

"Importantly, the committees can have real influence over policy and decision making - they gather evidence, listen to residents, and provide formal recommendations to Cabinet - recommendations that can change the way in which services are delivered, and ultimately ensure the best possible outcomes for the people of Cardiff, that's why it's really important that residents get involved with our work."
