Welsh Deputy First Minister opens newly widened section of the M4

A newly widened section of the M4 has been officially opened by the Deputy First Minister of the Welsh Assembly.

Ieuan Wyn Jones this week unveiled a plaque to celebrate the recently completed project that added an extra lane to a section of the M4 between Castleton and Coryton near Cardiff.

Mr Jones welcomed the widened section, saying: “I am delighted to see the completion of this scheme which will reduce congestion and improve journey time reliability.”

The project is part of a wider rehaul of the transport infrastructure in Wales in accordance with the Assembly Government’s One Wales project, promoting sustainability, social cohesion and regeneration.

  • If 13km of the M1 had been opened on time and within budget, there might have been a slightly more comprehensive article than this! As this is only in Wales a proper article, with details of the project and the companies involved, probably isn't justified!
