The Welsh Government has welcomed George Osborne's promise that an announcement on a scheme to improve the M4 at Newport will come in the next two months. But a spokesperson said there are 'important issues that remain to be resolved.'
We have been pressing for an agreed funding package for a strategic enhancement to the M4 for many months. It's very welcome that the Chancellor has expressed support in principle and said a decision will be made on the details shortly. However, no deal has been done yet and we will continue to work through the important issues that remain to be resolved.
