One of Powys's main roads reopened late on Monday evening (November 20) following a crash which closed the A470 for several hours.

A section between Builth Wells and Newbridge-on-Wye was shut to traffic in both directions from around 4.30pm until 10pm.

Dyfed-Powys Police had urged drivers to avoid the area and find a different route to their destination.


Traffic information in the area had shown traffic had come to a standstill on the road with vehicles backing up past the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd.

County Times:

It is unclear at this time the condition of those involved in the collision.

This evening's crash comes only a day after another serious collision led to the same road being closed by police for 14 hours.
