Brynglas tunnel opens after fire

The Brynglas tunnel on the M4, South Wales, reopened on Friday following a major fire that led to its closure for three days last week.

Fire broke out in the west bore on Tuesday morning causing major traffic disruption in South Wales. The fire occurred on a lorry and no-one was injured.

“Following the structural assessment that was concluded earlier this morning - and the considerable amount of work carried out on the tunnels over the last 72 hours - the westbound tunnel has now been reopened,” said Welsh Assembly minister for transport Carl Sargeant.
