The continuing traffic chaos and congestion in Baglan and other communities as a result of the peak-hour closure of junction 41 of the M4 is a major problem for those communities.
The Welsh Liberal Democrats Assembly Member for South Wales West, Peter Black is pressing the Welsh Government to take reopen the junction and to take more responsibility for the continuing problems caused by its closure.
His concern is that the closure of this junction is having an adverse impact on roads which are not the responsibility of the Welsh Government and that they are passing the buck to the local council as to who is responsible for sorting it out. There needs to be a very early assessment of the impact the closure is having on local communities and measures put in place, funded by the Welsh Government to address these problems.
Like other Assembly Members Peter Black has had many representations from local residents about the impact the junction closure is having on their community. He has seen that chaos for himself and been caught up in it. It is unacceptable that the Welsh Government allows this to carry on much longer without offering some solutions to alleviate the congestion they have caused.
Join us in campaigning to reopen the junction and to relieve the pressure on local communities
