Welcome to Tintern

The village of Tintern is the stunning home to a world famous Cistercian abbey and an ancient industrial heritage. Sitting quietly in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is a wonderful place in which to live, raise families and to enjoy the spirit of community.

Tintern also welcomes the thousands of visitors who pass this way each year, seeking the renewal which comes from a short time spent in its surroundings.

Advice on A466 road closure at Bigsweir
  • Advice on A466 road closure at Bigsweir
  • Background
    The following is based on information provided by Gloucestershire County Council

    What: Road closure for embankment stabilisation works

    Where: A466 Wye Valley (Bigsweir Bridge)

    When: 26th September - 3rd December 24hr closure

    On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, Amey are carrying out embankment stabilisation works at the above location.

    This is a major scheme to scale back the embankment and remove loose rock and soil that otherwise could potentially fall onto the highway and cause a serious incident. The embankment will then be netted and pinned to prevent any rocks falling in the future. Due to the size of the equipment required and the nature of the scheme, it will be necessary for us to fully close the road for duration of the works. This is for the safety of road users and our workforce.

    There will be no access for through-traffic on the A466 between Redbrook and St Arvans for the duration of our scheme. If you normally drive this route we ask you to please make alternative arrangements. Local access will be maintained on either side of the closure and a signed diversion will be in place for through traffic.

    A revised timetable for bus route 69 has been provided by Monmouthshire County Council (valid for duration of the works).

    If you have any queries please contact Gloucestershire County Council on 08000 514514.
