From the BBC
A commission was set up after Welsh ministers scrapped plans to build a £1.6bn relief road around Newport.
To encourage people out of their cars, its report suggested considering a “workplace parking levy” and ensuring public transport was “affordable for all”.
The panel was told not to consider plans for another motorway.
The M4 around Newport is the fourth most congested stretch of road in the UK.
And the other problem is that you’re about 9 months behind, laddies. There is no congestion at 8am around Newport at the moment. It’s blue all the way from Bristol to Cardiff. Everyone is working at home during Covid. What happens post-Covid? I don’t know but no-one is gagging to get back to the office every day now. So, put a pin in your choo-choos and see what the situation is like before spending a load of money, yeah?
