A455 Newport SDR

Scheme outline

Upgrade of the A455 Newport (in Wales) Southern Distributor Road to dual-two lane standard, mostly on-line but with off-line diversions including a new bridge over the River Usk. The upgraded route will loop between M4 junctions 24 and 28. The road will be at-grade, with a large number of roundabouts along the way.

The upgraded road will assume the A48 number, and the A455 designation will be removed altogether.

This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
