Accident Remedial Work at Dead man’s Corner

 

 

Monmouthshire County Council have employed highway consultants Capita Symonds to produce a plan which it is believed will reduce the number of accidents on the A466 at Dead Man’s Corner.

 

On the southern side of the bend;

 

  1. ‘Slow – Araf’ markings on the carriageway approaching Tintern at about 250 metres from bend.
  2. Bend Warning sign with distance indication at about 250 metres from bend
  3. Another  ‘Slow – Araf’ marking on the carriageway approaching Tintern at about 50 metres from bend.

 

On the Tintern side of the Bend;

 

  1.  ‘Slow – Araf’ markings on the carriageway leaving Tintern at the same point as the existing bend warning sign.

 

At the Bend;

 

  1. Six additional chevron boards mounted on top of existing assemblies using extender posts.
  2. Carriageway to be retextured. Retexturing is a mechanical process using machinery that physically retextures the surface to increase the skid resistance of the surface. Alternatively an anti skid surface that may offer enhanced skid resistance may be used.
