Forecasted High Tides are due in Tintern this week.  We will be monitoring the situation and, if necessary, will arrange for the A466 through Tintern to be closed for short periods on the following dates and times:-

 

Wednesday 9th March 2016 –         8:10pm to 8:40pm (20:10 to 20.40)

Thursday 10th March 2016 –           8.30am to 9:00am  

                                                               08:55pm to 9.25pm (20:55 to 21:25)

Friday 11th March 2016 –                  9.15am to 9:45am 

                                                                09:35pm to 10:05pm (21.35 to 22:05)

Saturday 12th March 2016 –              09:55am to 10.25am

 

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. 

 

Again, please note 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.
