The public have been invited to have their say on what to do about congestion on the M4 following the Welsh Government's decision not to go ahead with its plans to build a relief road last year.

The South East Wales Transport Commission has launched ‘Have your Say’, an online survey to gather ideas and suggestions for tackling congestion on the M4 and improving transport across the region.

The commission was established by Welsh Ministers last year to consider ways to tackle congestion on the M4 and surrounding roads.

The commission has been asked to look at alternatives to the relief road. It will put forward a broad package of recommendations that include road, bus, rail and active travel.

Lord Burns, Chair of the South East Wales Commission, said:

“The issues affecting transport across South East Wales are acute and complex. Significant improvements are required across many locations and many modes of travel.

“We would like to ensure that the recommendations we set out reflect the needs and opinions of those who live, work and regularly travel within the region. It is therefore very important to make sure that as many people as possible complete the survey.”

Feedback and suggestions received from the survey will be carefully analysed and considered as part of the commission’s report to ministers due in spring this year.
