Proposed linked route routes between M4 J34 and A48 to be announced next week - https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wale ... k-14515183

Might finally be a step towards improved road links to the airport. Am not holding my breath though as I've seen several such plans in the past for this.

It might well happen. The work on Five Mile Lane is due to start any day now and presumaby this scheme will link on to it.

I suppose it would provide improved access to the airport from the west. I suspect people driving from the east will continue to use the A4050 rather than A48 or M4.

I dunno. People in Rhondda, Pontypridd (I guess the North rather than the East), might go via J34 link (either coming over Tonyrefail or Church Village way). And if I was in Newport, would I rather come off J33 or J34? I don't know... whatever is signposted I bet.

The A4232 can be a pain as well at times, as can Culverhouse Cross. Coming off at J34 might work for a few from the East if they are familiar with the area.

Take a look at the map. They label the route where the road passes to the west of Pendoylan as the eastern route, and vice versa.

I know they are time pressured but they forget their own articles, can't write decent English, get their numbers muddled up, and now don't know East from West.

They must have corrected it, because it's showing east as east and west as west now.
