Buses traveling from Chepstow, after exiting Mitel Roundabout the ‘74’ will turn right onto ‘Chepstow Road’ – turn left onto ‘Woodstock Way’ – turn right onto ‘Caldicot Bypass’ – turn right at the traffic light onto ‘Newport Road’ & ‘Jubilee Way’, after approaching the mini roundabout the service will turn left onto ‘Sandy Lane’ and continue its normal journey.
The service will operate the same route (vice-versa) from Newport.
Caldicot residents may have noticed that signage has been erected by Alun Griffiths Contractors around the Cross Destination works area regarding a temporary road closure. The closure is necessary as part of the carriageway resurfacing works currently being carried out on behalf of Monmouthshire County Council.
It will be a two-phase closure. During phase one a section of carriageway between the Church Road junction and the mini roundabout (Sandy Lane) will be closed from the 13th January – 9th March, 2020.
During phase two a section of carriageway between the Church Road junction towards Chepstow Road will be closed from 9th March to 13th April, 2020.
Traffic will be diverted through Woodstock Way for both phases and diversion signage will be in place. The maps shown below demonstrate the area to be closed and the diversion route for both phases.
There will be a temporary two-way traffic light system in place between Church Road and either Sandy Lane or Chepstow road, depending on which phase is in progress. Church Road will be accessible from both directions at all times.
Bus companies and Monmouthshire County Council bus services have been informed of the scheduled road closures and diversions, current timetables will not be altered. The existing bus stops on Chepstow Road will be relocated near Jubilee Way car park and a temporary bus shelter will be provided on the verge side of the road with ‘Temporary Bus Stop’ signage provided at both locations.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of the temporary traffic management arrangements and appreciate your support during the next few months whilst the essential work is being carried out, we aim to keep disruption to a minimum during this period.
