Costain A465 dualling cave closures for 2017 - Oct 2016

"Costain have agreed a protocol for closing caves with Cambrian Caving Council which involves the timely placing of durable explanatory official notices at cave entrances plus disseminating the same information in various media. So take notice that:

(1) Nant Rhin and Pont Gam caves will both be closed, along with their associated access paths, from March 2017 to June 2017 due to blasting operations for the A465 east-bound lane rock cutting.

(2) Ogof Capel and Ogof Gelynnen caves and footpaths will be closed from July 2017 to October 2017 during the removal of overburden above these caves for the new road construction of the west-bound lanes."
