|Route outline (key)|
The A4047 runs east of Tredegar, through Beaufort and Brynmawr, ending at the eastern end of the Brynmawr bypass. The entire section of road was originally the A465 and was renumbered A4047 when the bypass was built.
Starting at a roundabout on the A4048 on the edge of Tredegar, the road heads east. It crosses the Sirhowy River immediately before skirting the village with the same name. The road reaches open country, which is actually reclaimed industrial land. To the left are lakes and a memorial to Aneurin Bevin, whilst there is an industrial estate hidden to the right.
A roundabout is reached where the A4046 heads right to Ebbw Vale. After passing Morrisons, a roundabout with the A4281 is reached and there is a short multiplex to the left with the A4047 number apparently dominant, which ends when we TOTSO right to continue our easterly course.
The road crossed the Ebbw River to run through the village of Beaufort, meeting the B4560 in the process. The road climbs through the settlement, running seamlessly into Brynmawr. The road passes to the north of the town centre to reach a roundabout where it meets the A457 and A465. The latter takes on our route ahead and so the A4047 ends here.
