A466 road closure 2019
Despite the earlier announcement made in February, Monmouthshire County Council now confirms that work at the Livox site (between Tintern and St Arvans) will start on May 7th rather than April 8th. It is assumed that this will last for approximately seven weeks as before, although the signs currently say 12 weeks.. Council sources claim that extended working hours, including weekends, are being allowed and it aims to have the road open before the Tintern Fete being held on Saturday June 29th. A date for work at the Wyndcliffe site is still to be confirmed but it is likely to be delayed until next year.
TINTERN AND ST ARVANS
Friday April 19 to Sunday 21 April
High tides are due, so the A466 through Tintern might be closed for short periods on the
following dates and times:-
Friday 19th April Between 20.55 – 21.25 (approx.)
Saturday 20th April Between 09.15 – 09.45 (approx.)
Saturday 20th April Between 21.35 – 22.05 (approx.)
Sunday 21st April Between 09.55 – 10.25 (approx.)
Sunday 21st April Between 22.30 – 23.00 (approx.)
The closure points will be as follows:
North End closure: Trelleck Road junction.
South End closure: Royal George junction.
Closure times are estimated based on the forecasted tide times. Natural Resources Wales will be monitoring the situation and issuing Flood Warnings as necessary. Road closures will only be temporary and only when tidal water actually overflows onto the highway. The road will reopen as soon as the water has receded from the highway.
