THERE will be closures on some of Gwent's busiest roads this week.

The M4 will be closed around Newport, on the M48, and at points along the A449 as well.

Overnight closures will hit both roads this week.


These are the closures to plan ahead for:

M4 westbound, junction 24-28: Overnight closures will take place on the westbound carriageway of the M4 around Newport this week from junction 24 for Coldra to junction 28 for Tredegar Park. They will start this evening, and run until June 10. The closures, which will allow maintenance work to take place, will be between 8pm and 6am.
