Road closures have been lifted after £1.25m repairs on a major route in Rhondda Cynon Taff were finished.

Work on Rhigos Mountain Road which links the Rhondda and Cynon valleys began in April and finished on the weekend.

It forms part of a £23m investment by the local council to tackle damage caused by severe winters.

Rhondda Cynon Taf council leader Andrew Morgan said the focus had been to complete work before next winter.

About 6,000 tonnes of new surface has been laid on a 5.6 mile (9km) section.
