Green light for Port Talbot link road

A multi million pound investment to complete the second phase of a major transport route in Neath has been given the green light.

Welsh deputy first minister Ieuan Wyn Jones has approved of £107M of Welsh Assembly Government and EU funding to enable the completion of the Neath Peripheral Distributor Road (PDR).

The funding will provide a 4.8km link from the M4 motorway at junction 38 into Port Talbot.

The final phase will connect with previously completed phases and free up 210ha of mainly brownfield land for development.

Access to Port Talbot docks and deep water harbour will be improved, creating opportunities for transfer of freight from road to sea, increased shipping activity and waterfront development.
