Shame there are no road signs warning of the closure !!! Would have prevented myself and 30-40 other drivers arriving at the closure and having to turn around and drive all the way back!

That part of the road is in Blaenau Gwent, surely you don't expect BGBC to get it right. It will take them weeks to find a shovel to move the mess!
