New layout to cut traffic jams

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 - 9:04

A NEW road layout is being installed in Newport town centre to reduce congestion.
The current system of three lanes at Church Litten has one lane for all traffic for Morrisons supermarket, its petrol station and Marks and Spencer.
The council said that could lead to traffic congestion at busy times.
It said the new layout would have one lane for Morrisons traffic, one lane for Marks and Spencer and Morrisons petrol station traffic and one lane for traffic heading to the town centre.
The works are due to be completed on Friday, although this depends on the weather as new lines need to be painted.
The existing traffic lights will be slightly remodelled as part of the new layout and this part of the work will take place next week, the council said.
