Port Talbot is another one-planned service area which little seems to be known about.

It was put forward by the Welsh Development Agency but rejected because the nearby gas sites were deemed a health and safety hazard.

The plans included a hotel, fast food outlet and a pub. The M4 in South Wales already has a lot of services, but the Welsh Development Agency managed to find a short section that wasn't, and presumably wanted to take advantage of all the passing trade.
