Forecasted high tides are due again this weekend.  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:-

 

16th October               Between 20:45 – 21:15 (approx)

17th October               Between 09:00 – 09:30 (approx)                                                                                                        Between 21:30 – 22:00 (approx)

18th October               Between 09:45 – 10:15 (approx)

Between 22:15 – 22:45 (approx)

19th October               Between 10:30 – 11:00 (approx)

 

 

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.  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.

 

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THE A466 IS CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC AT LIVOX QUARRY UNTIL 6th NOVEMBER.
