Emergency road closure: Cromwell Road
Posted on Wednesday 8th September 2021
Newport City Council has temporarily closed Cromwell Road between Liscombe Street and Fairfax Road to through traffic due to a void appearing in the road.
Diversions have been put in place via the SDR and Nash Road to the south, and via Chepstow Road to the north.
Residents of Liscombe Street can still access their street, but only from the Corporation Road end of Cromwell Road. Fairfax Road residents must use the Somerton Road end. The footpath remains safe to use.
We are working with partners to determine the cause of the void and fix the situation as quickly as we can.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will issue further updates on the situation in due course.
