Tolling the M4 in Wales would be a matter for the Welsh Assembly.
This map shows the section of the M4 that is frequently congested, and that would be bypassed if plans for a 14-mile relief road went ahead.
The Welsh government has long pushed for a relief road in this area. Plans were shelved in 2009 after the projected cost of the project rose to £1 billion.
The Welsh Government have refused to comment on reports that the UK Government will soon announce plans to back a new M4 relief road around Newport.
In a statement they said that they "do not comment on speculation."
We have been pressing the UK Government for access to borrowing powers in order to finance infrastructure investment. Those talks are continuing.
Meanwhile, we continue to consider the large volume of responses to our consultation on M4 corridor enhancements from Magor to Castleton.
Sustrans Cymru - an organisation that promotes greener transport - has condemned the potential M4 Toll as "poor value for money".
A spokesman said that a "more cost effective way to reduce congestion would be to invest in shifting these journeys to public transport."
"The Welsh Government acknowledges that 40% of journeys on this stretch of the M4 are local trips of under 20 miles," he added.
We have seen with the M6 Toll that drivers can be turned off by the imposition of charges. There is already a toll to get into Wales on the Severn Crossing but no toll to get out.
There is no doubt that the M4 around Newport needs improving. At the moment if there is a bad accident and the road is closed there is no real alternative for drivers.
But if the road is tolled it reduced its economic effectiveness as a lot of people will be put off using it and will simply avoid it.
