​Since 2011 there have been speed restrictions placed in and around the Brynglas Tunnels on east and westbound M4 carriageways causing misery for countless motorists on a daily basis. It is proposed to remove all speed restrictions in this area and revert back to the national speed limit in both east and west directions.
