LOCAL Assembly Member Nick Ramsay attended a meeting earlier today at Mathern Village Hall where concerns about waste management issues alongside the M48 were discussed.
The meeting was also attended by local County Councillor Graham Down, representatives of the police, the Trunk Road Agency and Monmouthshire County Councillor’s Head of Planning, Mark Hand.
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.”
