MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has received an update from Edwina Hart AM, the Welsh Government Minister for Transport, concerning the A465 Section 2 Gilwern to Brynmawr dualling scheme.
The Minister has explained there will be a temporary road closure on both the eastern and western sides of the Glanbaiden Roundabout at Gilwern beginning today until April 2016. Diversionary routes will be in place and a shuttle bus service will be provided so that local people can stay connected with local bus services.
Speaking today, Mr Ramsay said:
“The Minister has informed me that the police, emergency services, local Authority and Trunk Road Agent have all been consulted about the road closures and are apparently content . Further information about the closures are being advertised via the project website and by email to all those on the project database.
“I fully appreciate that this lengthy road closure will undoubtedly cause some inconvenience to local people. I will be happy to pass on details of any serious problems arising from the temporary closure direct to the Minister should constituents wish to contact me with any concerns.”
