AM Attends Presentation at The Bryn on A40 Noise Campaign

Monmouth Assembly Member, Nick Ramsay, attended a further meeting at The Bryn last Friday with County Councillor Sara Jones and local residents supporting the long-running campaign for reduction of road noise from the busy A40 between Abergavenny and Raglan.

Welsh Government officials gave a presentation on noise mitigation proposals which comprised a mixture of fencing as well as resurfacing a stretch of the A40 near The Bryn.

Some months ago a test surface was laid and noise monitoring equipment was installed to assess the effectiveness of the new road surface.

Speaking after Friday’s meeting Nick said: “This was a comprehensive presentation by the Welsh Government officials, which received a cautious welcome. It is hoped that the steps proposed should significantly reduce road noise levels for local residents who have been campaigning for years for action.

“However, I do appreciate the concerns of residents living at Bryngwyn as the proposed scheme will not help their village. I will be calling on the Welsh Government to make progress finding a solution for Bryngwyn also as soon as possible.”
