    A5 road closures

    Our work to lay a new road surface southbound between the Portway junction and Kelly’s Kitchen Roundabout is progressing well. Once complete, this will ensure that the A5 remains safe and serviceable for years to come.

    Our work began on Monday 16 October 2023, and we expect this to be complete by March 2024.

    Work will be carried out nightly between 8pm and 6am (excluding Sundays), weather conditions permitting.
