A466 OPENING TODAY 18 JUNE

The following statement issued by MCC:

Works on the Wyndcliff site between Tintern and Chepstow are due to come to an end. The removal of the closure and reopening the road will take place by the close of today (Friday 18th June 2021). This follows weeks of work to stabilise the cliff adjacent to the road.

There are a number of outstanding works that will need to be complete and Monmouthshire County Council will need to temporarily reinstall two-way lights for a short period to allow the workers a safe area to complete these works.

There were plans to complete repair works on another section of bank near to Tintern under the current closure but due to ecological issues the works could not be started. Unfortunately, workers will have to return to complete these works at a later date but it is hoped that this can be done without a further closure.

Councillor Jane Pratt, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Neighbourhood Services said: "We are pleased to have completed these essential safety works and be able to re-open this important part of our road network. We would like to thank residents and business owners for their patience during this time."

This notice will expire on 23rd June 2021

BUS SERVICE DURING A466 CLOSURE

THIS NOTICE HAS EXPIRED
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.

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.
