The aim of this scheme is to replace a winding section of the A470 north of Builth Wells with a new single carriageway road to improve safety and overtaking opportunities. The new road will also allow traffic to avoid the low bridge at Cwmbach and the traffic lights at Pont-ar-Ithon.

|9 December 2011||The new road was officially opened yesterday.|
