The works at the Gyrnos Estate will be carried out over a three-week period and during that time, a number of short-term road closures will be needed, which will only be in place during working hours, which will be from 8am-6pm.
Signed diversions will be in place while access to properties will be limited while work is being carried out but traffic management operatives will be onsite to assist with access to all properties.
Snow Terrace will be closed during the working day for two days on Monday, October 29 and Tuesday, October 30. The working day will be from 8am-6pm. Signed diversions will be in place while access to properties will be limited while work is being carried out but traffic management operatives will be onsite to assist with access to all properties

Access to properties will remain while the work in being undertaken, there will be traffic management operatives will be onsite to assist with access to all properties and a convoy vehicle will be used to ensure the safe flow of traffic throughout the workzone
All the works at these locations will involve planing off the existing damaged surfaces, adjusting manhole covers and gully gratings, laying a new surface where required and reinstating the road markings.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: "The daytime closure of Snow Terrance and the Gyrnos Estate for the duration of these works is due to the restricted width of the roads and to ensure that our contractors and their staff can carry out the works safely.
"Signed diversions will be in place while the resurfacing works take place but the roads will re-open each evening.
"We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but I'm sure drivers will appreciate the new surfaces when the works have been completed in these areas of Ystradgynlais."
