M4 junction 28 improvements

Wednesday 15 November 2017

This statement from contractors Costain has been issued in response to comments about traffic flow in this area.

The Welsh Government, in partnership with the council, is improving the M4 J28 Tredegar Park roundabout, the A467 Bassaleg roundabout, and the Southern Distributor Road (SDR) Pont Ebbw roundabout.

The aim is to increase the amount of traffic that can travel through these roundabouts and so reduce delays on the M4, A48, A467 and SDR, and improve safety on these junctions.
