P-05-853 No to any Closure of Junction 41


This petition was submitted by Carol Clement - Williams, having collected 473 signatures.


Text of Petition

Calls on the Welsh Government to reject any proposal to close junction 41 of the M4. 


A report by WSP to Welsh Government published in September 2018 which considers measures on the Welsh Government motorway and trunk road network for Nitrogen Dioxide reduction includes a proposal to close Junction 41 westbound on slip as a measure to reduce roadside emissions on the M4 between junction 41 and junction 42. This will only increase emissions of Nitrogen Dioxide on local roads and have a greater impact upon local people particularly children.
