Public meeting over Brynglas proposals

Hundreds of residents around the M4 in Newport who face having their homes demolished are due to attend a public meeting this evening. Up to 300 homes could be demolished in order to widen the motorway near the Brynglas Tunnels.

Under a Welsh Government consultation, there are four proposals on the table. The fourth proposal, building two new tunnels at Brynglas has proved the most controversial. The public meeting will be held at Brynglas House at 6pm this evening.

This evening a spokesperson from the Welsh Government will attend in order to straighten things out and stop all rumours of what is going on. It will give the people from Newport a chance to have their say.
