The Welsh Government says there's been 'incredibly positive feedback' from the transport industry on plans for a Metro system.

It would involve a combination of heavy and light rail, and bus transport across South Wales.

Today a publicity campaign's being launched on the Valleys lines.

The Metro project represents the future of public transport in South East Wales which will provide faster journey times and more frequent services covering a greater area. It is an ambitious project linking people and jobs across South Wales in a fast, efficient and environmentally positive way.

The motoring association added that today could see a 25% hike in attempted deliveries.

Monday is often the worst day for attempted deliveries as more people are at work so on top of the extra traffic there will be added congestion due to multiple delivery attempts. Don't think you will be safe at work as increasingly on-line shoppers are giving work addresses for deliveries - some receptionists could be in for a very manic Monday

– Edmund King, AA president
