Does not help when people approach the tunnels at 50mph, then for some reason brake hard and slow to 35mph. If people stuck to the limit of 50mph through the tunnels, there would be fewer accidents and less congestion.

Atleast the number of accidents reported has dropped. But the M4 around newport is simpley too busy and can not cope with the peak flow traffic. We do need a relief road but nobody has the insight to plan for the future so all we'll end up with is an upgrade or add on to the SDR etc rather than building a completly new road.
