THE A489 road between Newtown and Dolfor was closed for a short period earlier today (April 7) but was soon reopened.

Dyfed Powys Police reported that an incident on the road, between Newtown and Dolfor roundabout, had led the carriageway being blocked to traffic travelling south.

The force tweeted at around 4.30pm: “We are currently dealing with an incident on the A489 between Newtown and Dolfor Roundabout and the southbound carriageway is currently blocked.

“Please find an alternative route whilst we deal with this. Update to follow. Thank you.”

Just half an hour later though, the situation was resolved.

“The A489 between Newtown and Dolfor Roundabout southbound carriageway has now reopened. Thank you for your patience,” the force tweeted.
