AN URGENT closure is in force for the road through an SAS camp in Herefordshire.

Ewyas Harold Parish Council said it was "hot off the press" that the road through the Pontrilas Army Training Area was closed.

The C1221 Elm Green Road route passes through the camp and appears to have a collapsed culvert, the parish council said.


The road is now closed, according to Herefordshire Council, and the local council said it would be subject to "urgent works"

"Probably best to avoid," the council said.

The road will be closed for 10 days from Wednesday (February 22) until Friday. March 3.

The closure, due to a damaged culvert, will see a diversion signposted locally, Herefordshire Council contractor Balfour Beatty Living Places said.
