The A465 will be closed from 8pm until 6am on both the 28th and 29th October bewteen the A465 Ebbw Vale Roundabout and Brynmawr Roundabout. The closures are necessary for the safe completion of bridge inspections. Formal traffic diversions will be in place as per the route shown on the attached link. We apologise for the length of these diversions as we know from previous closures that they have caused some confusion and inconvenience. The signs along the diversion route have been approved and are inspected throughout the closure to ensure they remain in place. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes and urge motorists to plan either for the delay in following the diversion or to take alternative routes if available.
Alan Davies Way Bridge (Rassau West) - Open
The new bridge constructed on Alan Davies Way is now open. It now allows traffic to use the north-south link at the western end of the Rassau Industrial Estate. The southern access link is now closed as a through-road, except for access to businesses along that section. A schematic drawing of access routes to each area of the industrial estate can be seen by clicking HERE.
Carno Underpass Takes Shape
The concrete arch sections which form the culvert beneath Carno Embankment have now being lifted into place. Each of the 150 units weighs approx 28tonnes and have been placed to form a 9m high, 18m wide by 150m long culvert. The valley and arch are now in the process of being backfilled with material excavated from other parts of the scheme.
