UPDATE: Delays on M4 in Newport after crash near J24

South Wales Argus: Delays on M4 in Newport after crash near J24 Delays on M4 in Newport after crash near J24

UPDATE: 9.15am

FIRE crews responded to three accidents on the M4 this morning during rush hour.


Crews were called to an accident on the M4Westbound Magor to Coldra, involving a lorry and a car.

Those involved were said to be safe and well and fire crews did not have to help release them from their vehicles. Tailbacks and queuing were caused by the accident, but traffic has now returned to normal.


Another car collided with the central reservation of the M4 Eastbound Rogiet to Newhouse at 6.56am. Crews from Maindee, Malpas and Chepstow attended the incident, which involved just one car, but again the person involved had been able to free themselves before emergency services arrived.


A third car collided with the central reservation on the M4 Eastbound Pencoed to Miskin.

 

A South Wales Fire and Rescue spokeswoman urged drivers to take care as poor visibility, rain and surface water are making driving conditions poor.

 


 

SLOW traffic is reported due to an accident involving three vehicles on the M4 westbound between J23A at Magor and J24 at the Coldra.

Lane two was blocked by three vehicles that collided. Other drivers helped and moved all the vehicles to the hard shoulder.

The opposite carriageway is also slow as traffic slows at the scene.

Yet more problems on this section of motorway, They are an almost daily occurrence. This section is not up to motorway standard and needs significant improvements to bring the safety up to an acceptable level

To prevent such future occurrences I suggest a roof for the entire stretch. There is no point banging on about "improvements", "daily occurrences", &c. when these are accidents caused by "poor visibility, rain and surface water... making driving conditions poor."

Strange how other sections of the M4 do not suffer this high accident nor do other motorways

Bob, this very article states "A third car collided with the central reservation on the M4 Eastbound Pencoed to Miskin". You are making yourself out to be a fool as usual.

I suggest you look at the statistics as they do not agree with your claim

The "statistics" eh...Got a link?
I have done a search of the UK's road networks to discover the top 10 m/way black spots, and our stretch of m/way doesn't feature. Most if not all the worst spots are on wide multi lane motorways such as the M25/M5/M8/M3 , M62 junc 7, all of these with the exception of the M8 i have used on many occasions ( info provided by "which" RAC and BBC ) I strongly agree with you that Improvements need to be made, but building a new m/way is Not one of them. Sits back and waits for another article from the M4 pro relief road lobby..

I was always taught to drive in a manner applicable to road, traffic and weather conditions. If visibility and weather conditions are poor, continuing to belt along past everyone at 70 is only stupidity.
