Acting on the condition of the trunk roads

As you will be aware the surfacing on some sections of the A465 has deteriorated rapidly over recent weeks due to poor weather conditions. Works to repair the surfacing along the section between Dowlais and Cefn Coed actually commenced last week, but completion of the repairs had to be postponed due to prolonged rainfall.

Works also had to be timed in line with the needs of some local businesses.

Dawn Bowden AM said “It has been confirmed to me that patching works are due to be completed over the next couple of nights and in the interim 40mph ‘black on yellow’ advisory signs have been erected along the verges to supplement the ‘uneven road’ signs that are already on site”.

“I also await confirmation of repair works to the surface of the A470”.
