Stop-start traffic is reported for seven miles on the M4 westbound between J23 at Magor and J25A at Newport, heading towards the Brynglas Tunnels.

The delays are due to the combination of Friday afternoon traffic, plus this evening's Six Nations rugby match at the Millennium Stadium between Wales and France, which kicks off at 8pm.

Delays like that are routine over the whole of the motorway system and one reason for stop start traffic is drivers not obeying the recomended speed limits

.Every cloud has a silver lining One advantage of slow traffic is that accidents are rarely fatal.

How can you obey the recomended speed limits in stop start traffic? Agreed it is like this all over the country, just happens that usually any delays mentioned about the M4 through newport always attracts comments blaming drivers, which your comment pretty much proves my point.
