A466 TINTERN TO BIGSWEIRMonmouthshire County Council
The A466 is a high priority route in our highways hierarchy and as such we attempt to maintain it at the highest affordable level consistent with our objective and statutory obligation to maintain the highway network in a safe and serviceable condition. IN addition, much of the A466 has a national speed limit of 60mph and therefore a combination of factors would set the risk and consequence of accidents on this road to be HIGH.
Clearly, the likelihood of accidents is much higher where the road surface is uneven and potholed.
There are currently three sections of the A466 which are in moderate / urgent need of resurfacing ;
The stretch just south of Bigsweir.
The stretch in the vicinity of Brockweir
The stretch in the vicinity of Tintern Station
AS you know we have had difficulty finding a programme space for works on the A466 as a result of the protracted structural problems south of Tintern, however , now the first phase of these works is coming to a conclusion we will be looking to resurface Brockweir and Tintern station in the period February to March 2020. Unfortunately because of the narrow width of the road on both these sections the works will have to be carried out under a road closure.
For resurfacing works of this nature the road is required to be closed between 9:15am and 3:30pm and is reopened for the remaining part of the day. I would estimate each site would take approx.. 5 working days.
The section at Brockweir is planned for 2020/21 .
I know everybody is fed up of the protracted inconvenience being suffered by residents, businesses and motorists but by carrying out the works in Feb/ March the disruption will be at its lowest level.
I hope this gives some reassurance that we are doing our best to provide the essential highway maintenance service in a logical and planned manner.
