SECTIONS of the A465 Heads of the Valleys trunk road will be closed over the next two weekends.

The first closure will come into effect at 8.30pm on Friday, November 3 and will end at 6.30am on Monday, November 6.

During this period, a temporary roundabout will be installed by the Saleyard bridge which will allow residents in Clydach and Gilwern to travel eastward without the need to turn around at the Dan y Coed roundabout.

There will also be a major traffic switch in force between the Saleyard and the Old Lion Hotel, which will see a diversion in place onto a new stretch of carriageway.

It will be shut again from 8.30pm on Friday, November 10 to 6.30am on Monday, November 13.

Diversions will be listed at either end of the closed section in both Brynmawr and Glanbaiden, while there will be crossover points in Clydach and Gilwern.
