newportrafficsnowRoadworks which have blighted Newport over the past couple of weeks are set to end two days earlier than planned.

The one-way restrictions currently in place on Fairlee Road, Staplers Road, Halberry Lane and Cross Lane will be removed on Tuesday next week unless work progresses well, in which case they will be removed on the evening of Monday.

Traffic has been building up on a daily basis from all directions as motorists try to find the best route to travel into Newport town center.
