The A465, or Heads of the Valleys road, is one of our key corridors and international gateways for the south Wales economy.

It connects the M4 at Neath to Abergavenny and Hereford. It provides links between west Wales and the Midlands, and also links up the northern valleys, supporting regeneration in the communities.

We are currently dualling the road to improve traffic flow and safety. This project will be completed in 2020. We have already completed section 1 between Abergavenny and Gilwern, section 3 between Brynmawr and Tredegar, and section 4 between Tredegar and Dowlais Top.
