ATISN  16242 - A465 Dowlais Top to Hirwaun dualling cost 

Information requested

Thank you for your request which I received on Friday 8th April 2022.  You asked for:

Information as to whether the receivership of the sub-contractor, Roadbridge, has affected the project cost for the A4765 Sections 5&6?

Our response

The cost to Welsh Government for the A465 Sections 5&6 has not changed as a result of the sub-contractor, Roadbridge’s, receivership. The current estimate for final cost remains unchanged from the figure previously published on the Welsh Government website. A465: section 5 and 6 Dowlais Top to Hirwaun

Next steps

If you are dissatisfied with the Welsh Government’s handling of your request, you can ask for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this response.  Requests for an internal review should be addressed to the Welsh Government’s Freedom of Information Officer at: Information Rights Unit, Welsh Government, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ or Email:
