Plan ahead and play it safe when travelling to events

Don’t get caught out- remember to check before you travel and leave extra time for your journey.

Daily traffic flows increase on average by approximately 15% on the M4 near Cardiff when Wales are playing at home. Planned roadworks over the coming months could also mean the roads are busier. 

Upcoming events

  • Welsh Game Fair, 9-11 September, The Vaynol Estate Bangor. Expect delays on the A55 and A487 around J11-J9.

  • Usk Show, Gwernesney, 10 September. Delays possible on the M4 near Raglan and on the A449 next to the showground. 

  • Ironman Triathlon, Tenby, 9-11 September. Delays possible westbound on A477 and A40 on Friday and travelling eastbound on Monday.

The majority of planned works will occur on the M4. They will be completed with overnight and lane closures whenever possible. Follow the link on the right hand side to find out more about the latest roadworks in your area.

This does not include emergency works or disruption due to incidents.

Plan ahead.

Check the latest traffic information before you travel.

Check your vehicle before setting off.

Allow extra time for your journey.

 

These works are essential for the safety of the travelling public. The failure to do them now could result in further unplanned closures in the future.

Where it is safe to do so, roadworks will be lifted or suspended to minimise disruption during special events.

There may be times when you will see cones, signs and a reduced speed limit in force but no-one appears to be working. This is because works may be happening underneath the road, or the safety barrier or the carriageway may be affected which makes it temporarily unsafe to re-open the road.
