A472 road


A472 road

The A472 is a road in South Wales that runs east to west across the old South Wales coalfield from Treharris through Nelson, Ystrad Mynach, Maesycwmmer, Newbridge, Crumlin, Hafodyrynys, Pontypool, Little Mill and Usk.

It effectively covers a cross section of south east Wales from the post-industrial valleys to rural Monmouthshire, passing through small villages, larger towns, areas of relative prosperity and areas benefitting from redevelopment and its is a road that plays a part in that rejuvenation.

The road has been largely created from new and improved sections developed since 1980. Between Crumlin and Pontypool the road has been laid largely upon the trackbed of the disused Taff Vale Extension railway line.
