A465 Hirwaun to Cefn Coed Weekend Closure will start at 20:00 on Friday 21 January, with the road re-opening at 06:00 on Monday 24 January.

A full weekend road closure of the A465 between Hirwaun and Cefn Coed (A470 Junction) Roundabouts will start at 20:00 on Friday 21 January, with the road re-opening at 06:00 on Monday 24 January.

The weekend road closure is required to undertake work that cannot be safely completed whilst the road is open or under traffic management.

Work being undertaken during this closure includes:

  • Vegetation and essential tree clearance alongside the carriageway
  • Several duct and utility crossings throughout the closure
  • Excavation and surfacing
  • Other work will also take place throughout the area to maximise the use of the closure time.

 During this weekend closure, some overnight work will be undertaken. To minimise disruption:

  • Where possible, the overnight work will take place further away from residential areas
  • Excavator mounted cutting shears will be used for clearance, which are much quieter than chainsaws
  • Any vegetation and trees cleared during the night-time will be shredded during the daytime.

 An official diversion will be in place at www.a465.org/HirwaunCefnDiversion
