Rail plans could ease M4 hold-ups, says business group

New rail links between South Wales and England are an encouraging step towards easing congestion on the M4, a leading business group said today.

The statement from Logistics UK follows the UK and Welsh governments’ announcement, which we reported recently, of a £2.7 million study to explore options for new rail links and stations. 

The study is in response to the findings of Lord Hendy’s Union Connectivity Review, in which one of his recommendations was an urgent need to relieve congestion on the M4.

Jonas Keat of Logistics UK said the organisation supported more cooperation between governments and added: “This is … a positive outcome which will help to ease congestion on the M4, and hopefully lead to a significant reduction in the amount of traffic hauliers face on the road.” 

Logistics UK is one of the UK’s biggest trade associations, representing logistics businesses from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers, and more than seven million people directly employed in the making, selling and moving of goods.
