M4 Toll Newport Bypass
- New road under motorway restrictions
- Welsh Assembly
- PFI/Welsh Assembly
- 12.9 km (8.0 miles)
Construction of a new dual-three lane motorway standard bypass to the south of the city of Newport. The route has been planned for many years to relieve the existing M4 bypass, which runs through tunnels to the north of the city and cannot be widened. The plan has now finally been confirmed, as a privately financed toll road on the model of the M6 Toll.
It seems likely the new road will tie in to the existing M4 at or near to the existing junctions with the M48 and A48(M), in which case it seems likely that the existing Newport Bypass and A48(M) will be renumbered as M48.
