Powys: Roadworks to cause delays on A483 for over a month

Traffic Wales have announced that there will be roadworks on the A483 between Dolfor and Llanbadarn Fynydd with the road is set to be resurfaced.

The organisation, which maintains trunk roads in the county, also confirmed that this will likely lead to disruption with potential short road closures also expected, says the Powys County Times.

The works will be taking place during the daytime which will likely lead to issues for those trying to commute using that route.

Across this time temporary traffic lights will be in place as a traffic safety measure for those resurfacing the road.

The stretch of road was closed for a spell in May after flash flooding led to a landslide across the carriageway.

The work on the road will be happening in the hours from 8am and will continue throughout the day until 6pm.

A spokesperson for Traffic Wales said: “Essential carriageway maintenance and resurfacing work will be undertaken between Monday 3 June until Friday 12 July between Dolfor and a point north of Llanbadarn Fynydd.

“Work will include a lane closure for the majority of the works where a single traffic lane will be maintained utilising either signalised or manual traffic control between the hours of 8am and 6pm.

“Between June 5-11 and June 24-28, narrow sections of carriageway will require a full closure of the A483.

“A signed diversion route will be in place for all traffic to ensure a safe working area for operatives between the hours of 8pm and 6pm.

“No weekend working will be undertaken as part of this project.”
