Pont Ar Daf Car Park Commences on Site

Super few weeks for Encon Construction with our second new project commencing – Pont Ar Daf Car Park, at the base of Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons. The project is being developed in partnership with our client National Trust Cymru and the project team – Catherine Etchell Associates, George Tomos Architects, Hollis, Stace, RV Williams and Archaeological Services.

The project will provide a new and improved car park, adding around 200 more spaces, giving visitors access to a total of nearly 260 safe car parking spaces away from the busy A470 road. Disabled parking spaces will be provided alongside parking provision for minibuses, coaches and cyclists. Planned new visitor facilities will include toilets with disabled access, a changing places toilet, and baby changing facilities. Improvements to signage, footpaths and information will also allow people to better plan their day.

“These planned improvements have long been needed and will transform the visitor welcome at Pont ar Daf at the foot of this iconic mountain. Improving the car park is a key part of our work in looking after the Brecon Beacons, caring for the land around Pen y Fan and for the network of over 70km of footpaths so that thousands of people can continue to enjoy walking in this area.”
