What 3 issues do you feel MOST NEGATIVELY affect transport at this location? (Select no more than three).

• Traffic congestion

• Slow journey times

• Unreliable journeys

Tell us a bit more about these problems:

The congestion encountered on the M4, particularly at the Brynglas Tunnels, is a major concern to Tata Steel. It has resulted in delayed delivery and increased costs to the company in terms of servicing and accessing customers. Delays encountered in terms of servicing and accessing customers, many of whom rely on ‘just in time’ deliveries is a major concern and could result in lost customers. Congestion also has a significant impact on staff living west of the Brynglas Tunnels, regularly experiencing delays in their journeys to/from work at this point of the M4.

What are the 3 most important things that would IMPROVE transport at this location? (Select no more than three).

• Improvement of existing roads

• Faster journey time

• Better accessibility

Tell us a bit more about the improvements you want to see :

Following the decision not to proceed with the M4 relief road (via the ‘Black Route’), it is important that an alternative approach is brought forward as a matter of urgency to ease congestion and provide greater reliability to freight movements along the M4 corridor. This would lead to more predictable haulage costs. At the moment it is necessary to inflate costs to take account of likely delays at Newport (around the Brynglas Tunnels). This is a considerable overhead and impacts on the viability of those businesses that require freight to be moved by road.

If your top 3 improvements were made, would you consider using public transport, walking or cycling for some journeys that you currently make by car?

• Freight

Tell us a bit more about these problems:

The area to the east of Newport is well served by the existing rail freight network, but opportunities to increase the level of movements by rail could be explored

What are the 3 most important things that would IMPROVE transport at this location? (Select no more than three).

• Consideration of opportunities to increase the use of the existing rail freight network

Tell us a bit more about the improvements you want to see :

There should be an emphasis on looking at increasing freight operations/movements to help ease congestion on the M4. Any enhanced use of the rail freight network should not impede/restrict the existing high use of operations such as Tata Steel at Llanwern
