High Tides – Tintern (friday 18th – Sunday 20th September 2020)


Saturday 26th Sep 2020


High tides are due.  We will be monitoring the situation and if necessary, will arrange for the A466 through Tintern to be closed for short periods on the following dates and times:-

Friday 18th September                        Between 21.25 – 21.55 (approx.)

Saturday 19th September                   Between 09.50 – 10.20 (approx.)

Between 22.05 – 22.35 (approx.)

Sunday 20th September                      Between 10.30 – 11.00 (approx.)

Between 22.45 – 23.15 (approx.)

The closure points will be as follows:

North End closure: Trelleck Road junction.

South End closure: Royal George junction.

Closure times are estimated based on the forecasted tide times.  Natural Resources Wales will be monitoring the situation and issuing Flood Warnings as necessary.  Road closures will only be temporary and only when tidal water actually overflows onto the highway.  The road will reopen as soon as the water has receded from the highway.
