A467 works - January to March 2023

The council is carrying out work on the A467, between the Bassaleg roundabout and the Chartist Drive/Jubilee Park junction.

The work will be on the northbound carriageway and will include:

· Complete resurfacing of the road

· Work to improve the drainage on each side of the road

· Work to improve the crash barriers in the central reservation.

One lane of the northbound carriageway will be closed at all times during the works, and a reduced speed limit will be in place. This is for the safety of workers who will be carrying out the work.

The closed lane will alternate depending on where our teams are working. Emergency access to Forge Mews will remain in place at all times, as per current arrangements.

The central lane of the southbound carriageway will also be closed when our teams are working on the crash barriers.

Work started in late January, and will continue until the end of March at the earliest. Closures on the southbound carriageway should be removed before the end of February, once the work on the central safety barrier has been completed.

During the last two weeks of March, the northbound carriageway will be fully closed overnight.

As much as we would like to minimise the disruption to motorists and commuters, we are not able to undertake all the works overnight due to the noise sensitivity of our neighbours.

We are also unable to remove the traffic management at the end of the day due to the temporary absence of the safety barrier system.

Corn Street pedestrian improvements

Works for temporary footway widening are taking place on Corn Street and Upper Dock Street to provide improved pedestrian access and space for social distancing in the city centre. This includes road narrowing to provide additional space for pedestrians. Corn Street, Upper Dock Street, and Skinner Street will now operate with a one-way vehicle system. View map (pdf)

As part of this work, disabled parking bays on Upper Dock Street are being reassigned to alternative locations including additional disabled bays in city centre off street car parks such as Emlyn Street and Faulkner Road. The disabled parking bays on nearby Skinner Street remain.

The next phase of this work is to install controlled crossing points across Corn Street and Skinner Street, to provide improved pedestrian access between bus stations.
