One lane is closed for emergency repairs after an accident on the A465 in both directions between the Resolven Roundabout and the Aberdulais Roundabout.
Motorists across the South Wales Valleys and beyond are to benefit from more than £80m of European money. It's due to be spent on dualling several miles of the A465 Heads of the Valleys road between Brynmawr and Tredegar.
There will also be other improvements along the route which is one of the busiest on the Welsh main road network. David Wood reports.
Wales' Transport Minister, Carl Sargeant, told us the Heads of the Valleys road is vital for people to access jobs, and for the economy to function properly.
The Deputy Minister for European Programmes, Alun Davies, said it is 'fundamental' infrastructure, which 'enables us to compete on the Welsh, UK, European and world stage.'

The A465 is a crucial artery of our transport network and the principal road link between West Wales and the Midlands.
But this scheme isn't just about improving a road.
In addition to improving safety and shortening travel times for commuters and businesses, dualling the Heads of the Valleys road will also contribute to the wider regeneration of the region.
An improved Heads of the Valleys route will play a role in tackling poverty for the region by improving links to key sites within education, health centres and jobs.
Another lane will be added to the Heads of the Valleys road between Bryn Mawr and Tredegar.
It follows the announcement of almost £82 million of European funding.
The A465 dualling scheme will see improvements to the 7.8km route which extends from the north of the A465 roundabout at Brynmawr and tie in with the previously improved A465 at Tredegar.
The work is likely to start early next year.
