This certainly needs fixing, although I do worry about the traffic impact this would have on the already ridiculous Cypress Drive/Newport Road roundabout...

That will never happen, it would require raised loops to traverse both the motorway and the A48M, would cost a fortune and be very disruptive. Look at the work being carried out on J28 improvements, scheduled for 2 years! and they are only putting in an some traffic lights and a roundabout cut through.

Maybe the M4 relief road will come to the rescue.

I think we are talking about different junctions, i meant the junction further along down the dual carriageway, the one that takes you to the Newport Road roundabout by Cardiff Garden Centre. If people are driving in from the east they either have to go past this junction and do a u turn at Pontprennau roundabout or exit the M4 at Newport and drive along Newport Road. People won't do this to get to a park and ride train station or get to the offices they want to build there. Yes people do this at the moment who live or currently work around that location but the increased numbers they are talking about for this project would make this scenario a nightmare without major road infrastructure improvements.

I wasn't trying to upset you. I was merely pointing out your idea was less than credible.

Good luck to them. They've clearly been on the purple haze too.
