South will meet with North



For too long all roads led east, little wonder that Wales was an end-of-the-line country with a dead-end economy. Radnorian salutes the workers who completed this section of the north-south link ahead of time and on budget. We look forward to the by-passing of Builth and a Radnorshire in the middle of Wales rather than the middle of nowhere.

Tip: If you don't like the soundtrack mute it or better still play this.

It is, of course, the 'Motorway to Nowhere' according to one serial letter writer to the local press.

Unfortunately for him, it's not a motorway and it doesn't go 'nowhere', but that doesn't seem to worry him.

I'm more concerned that they've built all over the trackbed of the old railway - yet one more obstacle to its eventual re-building.

Yes Mr S seems to think they spent £35 million to cut 3 minutes off the journey from Newbridge to Builth. I think it's a case of not seeing the bigger picture.

Nice bit of road if that's your thing. I fear it will become a local boy racer's paradise in more ways than one. First fatalities inside 6 months, 12 months ...

Drove this on Tuesday in the dark black night. A revelation . Lets review the rest of the A470 and the A44 all the way to Aberystwyth as well. When all thats done and straigtened out, it will make an excellent 'flat' track bed.
