This paper outlines the work undertaken by Arup Transport Planning over the last four years in connection with the Common Appraisal Framework Study of the M4 around Newport in South Wales. The M4 around Newport opened in 1966 and was one of the first driveways constructed in Great Britain. It is widely held that this study was the first time such a multi-modal appraisal of transport alternatives had been carried out of an inter-urban basis. The main stages of the project include travel patterns, transport models, alternative transport scenarios and their appraisals. The impact of the proposed scenarios is discussed. It has been agreed upon that a change in transportation preference is likely to occur.
