ONE of the main roads between Risca and Crosskeys is due to be closed to traffic for a period next week.

Part of the A467 dual carriageway between the two communities will be closed for four consecutive nights from Monday, February 12, to Thursday, February 15, to allow for planned maintenance work to be carried out.

The closure is to allow renewing the cats’ eyes on the dual carriageway and some line refreshing on both the north and south bound carriageways.

The closures will only be in place overnight from 9pm to 6am on each of these days, with the road set to be reopened during the day.

The exact detail of each night of the closures are as follows:

  • Monday, February 12: Crosskeys to Risca southbound (renewing cats’ eyes)
  • Tuesday, February 13:  Risca to Cross Keys northbound (renewing cats’ eyes)
  • Wednesday, February 14: County Boundary to Risca (renewing cats’ eyes)
  • Thursday, February 15: Risca to county boundary (repainting rib line and renewing cats’ eyes)
