Safety work on coal tips

Merthyr Tydfil council has anounced that work to make former coal tips safe will get underway in the coming months. The council has received a Welsh Government grant to work on both council owned and privately owned coal tips. Design work is currently being done. The work required varies from capping mine shafts to drainage work, and re-directing streams.

Monitoring devices will be installed to check for any movement.  There will be work to line the watercourses to prevent further erosion of the tips.  Vegetation will be removed from old stone channels.

Work is set to start soon to cap a mine shaft at Gethin Pit, which is owned by the council. The Cwm Pit which is privately owned will see the continuation of works from last year to re-direct watercourses away from the tip.
