The white paper attached to the telegraph pole gives notice of the “Compulsory Purchase of Land and Rights Between Brynmaww and Tredegar in the County Borough of Blaenau Gwent”.
This is in connection with the dualling of the A465 road.
The bridleway which is on the route of the former Trefil tramroad will be closed at this point and a diversion created.
Dualling A465 road from Brynmawr to Tredegar
The A465 between Abergavenny and Neath connects the northern ends of the South Wales valleys and is therefore commonly known as the Heads of the Valleys road.
It is planned to improve the whole of this road up to dual 2-lane standard by 2020.
Compulsory purchase orders for the Brynmawr to Tredegar section were issued in August 2012 and the work is scheduled to be completed in early 2015. For most of this section, the existing A465 will be replaced by a new road to the north.
The Trefil Tramroad
A tramroad was constructed in 1796 in order to transport limestone from Trefil Quarries to ironworks at Beaufort and Ebbw Vale and a little later to Sirhowy.
The tramroad was converted into a narrow-gauge railway in 1908 and then subsequently to standard gauge in 1937.
