M4 slip closure at Neath Port Talbot 'will cost drivers'

Drivers will have to drive up to nine miles out their way when a slip road on the M4 near Neath Port Talbot closes, it has been claimed.

The controversial twice-a-day closure at junction 41 started on Monday as part of an eight-month experiment aimed at reducing congestion.

But Steve Garvey, president of the Port Talbot Chamber of Trade and businessman, said it would make driving more expensive for commuters and students heading to Swansea and Neath.

The westbound on-slip will now close from 07:00-09:00 and 16:00-18:00 BST.

Mr Garvey spoke to BBC Radio Wales.
