A major road into Cardiff City Centre has closed for three weeks and is expected to cause disruption across the capital.

Llantrisant Road from the junction with Heol Isaf to Cardiff Road, is shut in both directions as 'vital drainage' work gets underway.

Llantrisant Road - from the junction with Heol Isaf to Cardiff Road - is shut in both directions between 8am and 10pm from Monday to Saturday and from 9am until 10pm on Sundays.

It is expected to last for around three weeks. However the closures have left many unhappy with the disruption caused.

Owners of Pencoed House, a wedding venue on Llantrisant Road, said it was ''disappointed'' they were given no notice and apologised for the ''inconvenience'':

There is no access to the venue from the West, such as Swansea and Bridgend and alternative routes have been suggested.

We are very disappointed that we were given no notice. I apologise for any inconvenience this will cause, but it is business as usual at Pencoed House Estate. Just to reiterate, it is business as usual at Pencoed House and these road works will not stop any access to the venue. Once again, sincere apologies for any inconvenience this will cause to you and your guests, but we want to reassure you that it will not impact on your big day
