A4241 Port Talbot Peripheral Distributor Road Stage 2 6 February 2011

The aims of this scheme are to relieve congestion between junctions 38 (Margam) and 41 (Baglan) of the M4, to reduce traffic on the A48 through residential areas, to improve access to Port Talbot docks, and to open up areas along the waterfront for development.

This will be achieved by building a new section of dual carriageway from Port Talbot Industrial Estate to M4 J38, and by making environmental improvements to the existing A48 through Margam and Taibach, to discourage drivers from using that route.
