Junction 41 of the M4 in Port Talbot is to remain permanently open, following its temporary closure during peak times in an effort to ease congestion.
Local businesses and residents expressed concerns about a drop in trade and increased congestion in the town centre.
Ken Skates AM, Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, said he recognised that strategic traffic flow is of "great importance" to economic prosperity in south Wales, adding that further consideration of slip road closures in Port Talbot will not proceed.
Having considered the issue fully, including the implications of the uncertainties surrounding TATA Steel and the impact of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, I have decided not to proceed with further consideration of slip road closures at Port Talbot at this time.
However, I recognise that improvement of strategic traffic flow is of great importance to economic prosperity in South Wales. Therefore, I have asked my officials to engage with Swansea Bay City Region to seek their involvement in a wider study of the M4 corridor around Swansea that is currently being developed.
Since my election one of my priorities has been to ensure the smooth flow of traffic through Port Talbot and to halt any further closure of Junction 41. I am pleased that the Welsh Government has taken this step forward and I look forward to growing the economic prosperity of the town.
