FOUR people were taken to hospital after a two-car crash in Newport last night.

Fire crews from Maindee and Malpas attended the scene at 8.15pm and released three of the casualties from their vehicles on The Coldra roundabout.

One of the cars had left the carriageway.

The fourth person was released from the crash before fire crews arrived and all four were taken to hospital by the Welsh Ambulance Service.

Firefighters stayed at the scene of the accident for more than an hour.

This roundabout has the worst traffic controls . The marked lanes are very confusing and the traffic lights are not helpful during busy hours. Speed into the roundabout can be very dangerous I believe active speed controls would be a greater safety device than painted lines at this point.
Vehicles enter the roundabout front three motorway exits and a fast approach from Magor. Its very dangerous if you are already on the roundabout to see these people trying to join at excessive speeds.

I completely disagree. The Coldra is a busy junction and the system in place is perfect. The lanes are separated as they should be, and it's a lot better than it was 5/6 years ago.

People who cause accidents/speed on here are doing it because of themselves, not the road.

I drove past this accident last night and it was unreal how many emergency services were there. Accidents happen and hopefully all involved are ok.

The coldra flows far better than it did a few years back. I can remember everyone not quite knowing where they were meant to be but it's far better now. Used to avoid the roundabout, no need to worry now.

Welsh NHS faces total collapse. The assembly show no signs of controlling NHS spending. It is a looming disaster for Wales

A study by the Trust found a shortfall of £2.5bn could open up between 2015-16 and 2025-26, even if efficiency savings targets are achieved in the next year and the Welsh NHS budget rose with inflation over the following 10 years.

Funding of the Welsh NHS amounts to around £6bn a year – around 40% of the Welsh Government’s entire budget.

But the Decade of Austerity report, commissioned by the Welsh Government, warned that alarming funding shortfall projection could yawn even wider to £3.6bn if spending were frozen at current levels and didn’t rise in “real terms” (to match inflation).
