§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied with the progress of the work on converting the M4 motorway around Newport, Gwent, from a two-lane to a three-lane motorway; what is the anticipated completion date; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
Yes. Work is now nearing completion and I expect the road to be fully opened by the end of March. There will, however, be periods before then when all six lanes will be available for use.
