Crossings related to the A40

The Gibraltar Tunnels (more commonly referred to as the Monmouth Tunnels) are a pair of bored tunnels carrying the A40 through Gibraltar Hill near Monmouth. They were constructed in the late 1960s as part of the route linking the Midlands to South Wales.

The tunnels were opened as part of the Mitchell Troy and Gibraltar Diversion scheme on 30 June 1967 by Ifor Davies, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Wales (per the Cymru : Wales 1967 Report).
