The A465 will be changed to 2 lanes in each direction from Glanbaiden junction at Gilwern to Brynmawr roundabout.
For more information about this project, please see Welsh Government links on the right, for information on traffic management see details below.
This work is taking place on an 8km section of the A465 road, between Brynmawr and Gilwern. The existing A465 was built in the 1960s and a traffic study identified the need to improve the road by:
- making the road safer, especially around junctions and areas with poor visibility
- improving traffic flow and making it safer to overtake
To complete these complex and long term roadworks, the contractor will sometimes need to:
- reduce the road from 3 lanes to 2.
- close sections of the road overnight or over weekends
- use traffic lights to control traffic flow during the works.
Motorists will be able to cross the A465 at Saleyard from Station Road in the south to Main Road in the north and vice versa. Motorists will also be able to cross the A465 using side roads, at Gilwern from Station Road in the south to Main Road in the north and vice versa.
Emergency vehicles are able to pass through the works during the closures. The road can also be reopened in the event of disruption on the M4.
