Work to complete the removal of trees affected by ash-dieback on Caerleon Road will now run into early December.
This follows both the storms in late October, when high winds forced work on the site to temporarily stop, and evidence of species that are protected under European legislation.
This means that extra checks are now being made in each area prior to felling to ensure species and habitats are not disturbed.
The team are now on the last phase of the works, and weather permitting we are hoping that the work will be complete in early December.
Existing road closures and diversion routes will remain in place during this time, and the council will continue to provide temporary school transport for children in the Caerleon Road area.
The St Julian’s Inn public house remains open during this period, and access to it is available from the Caerleon side of the road closure.
Residents living in the wider affected area will be sent a letter containing further details within the next week.
