The canal bridge is closed in both directions in Talybont- on-Usk. Please do NOT move the signs and bollards to drive across. It is dangerous! Foot and bicycle traffic is fine, which is why the bridge is still down. There is a leak from the canal and a risk of further collapse from automobile traffic. To access Aber, the reservoir and beyond, use the Cross Oak Road.
The Canal and River Trust is monitoring the situation twice a day. We met with them this morning. A crew will be out on Tuesday for a full assessment.
Powys CC has already been alerted.
