§ Sir Wyn Roberts
There have been increases in the numbers of heavy goods vehicles entering Gwent from England over the last two years, but I cannot say that all are due to the effects of tolling. From the limited data available, it is estimated that the increases in daily flows are:130W
- 200 on the A48 in Chepstow
- 150 on the A40 in Monmouth
- 320 on the A4136 at Monmouth
In March 1994 the Highways Agency commissioned traffic surveys to establish the true extent of the problem. The report of the survey is not expected until mid June.
