BUS SERVICE DURING A466 CLOSURE

MCC has provided the following regarding the impact on bus services:

Colleagues in the public transport team have provided the following information regarding impact on bus services due to the A466 closure:

Buses will run as normal until the road is closed. When closed, there will be disruption to the through service between Chepstow and Tintern. At the moment the bus is too large to serve the diversion route so we can only run between Tintern and Monmouth and between Chepstow and St Arvans. Previously we put on a feeder minibus but this is not feasible at this time with the social distancing requirements on a minibus and the cost of putting this in place as well as driver availability as the company is currently having to run duplicate school services on some routes due to social distancing measures in place.

Mitigation measures are in place to ensure school transport continues to be provided.

This notice will expire on 1st June 2021

A466 CLOSURE WYNDCLIFF HAS BEGUN

It is hoped that the road closure will be removed prior to the second May bank holiday weekend.

Throughout the road closure period - now expected to be a four-week period from 4th May - a full diversion will be in place allowing traffic to travel between Chepstow and Tintern. Drivers are asked to follow the diversion signs and not rely on satnav, as many of the local lanes are very narrow with limited opportunities for vehicles to pass. Cyclists will still be able to use the A466 during the closure.

This notice will expire on 1st June 2021

A466 CLOSURE LATEST

THIS NOTICE HAS EXPIRED
The following has been confirmed by MCC:

  • Welsh Government grant funding has been secured.
  • Tree felling works are scheduled to start this week (29th)
  • Alun Griffiths Contractors has been awarded the contract and will start on site on 6th April as hoped. Part of the first week will be site set up but the full closure will commence w/c 6th April.
  • The contractor proposes to work a 6 day week meaning the road closure should be slightly less than the 4 weeks previously discussed. The works are scheduled to be complete before the first May bank holiday (again, as hoped). This is with the caveat of finding unexpected matters when they are working or cold weather delaying the start due to bats, but everything in our control is in place to achieve this.
  • The Contractor has allowed in his method statement to allow for pedestrians and cyclists to be escorted/walk their bikes through the site.
  • The last update from Gloucester County Council regarding their works near Redbrook suggests they are on schedule to finish on time.

It is envisaged that the work to make the small landslide at the village entrance safe will be carried out during the closure.
