Following South East Wales Transport Commission’s recommendations to introduce several congestion relieving measures on the M4, announced yesterday (17 December 2019), FTA’s Head of Welsh Policy, Sally Gilson comments: 
“The initial recommendations made by the Commission are totally inadequate and will not provide a sufficient, long-term solution to congestion along this crucial route. Vital to the Welsh economy, the M4 is a key lifeline to businesses across south Wales and any proposal to counter congestion in this stretch should not be considered as a local issue. FTA reiterates its calls to the Welsh Government to build a Newport relief road which would provide a long-term solution to alleviating the pressure along this crucial trade corridor.”
