Speaking after today’s meeting Nick said:

“I was pleased to have been able to attend this meeting to hear more about local concerns that have been raised for some time about the extraction of aggregate adjacent to the A48/M48 at Mathern and the problems with dust and noise in the area.

“I fully appreciate local concerns and the adverse impact on the M48. I’m calling for an assessment by the Welsh Government  to ensure that any safety implications for motorists are addressed and pointing out that there has been a build up of debris against the fence that demarcates highway land.”
