Briton Ferry services
The A48 Briton Ferry Bypass included a service station close to Skewen.
The road was built in the 1960s and closed in 1994, so the service station would have had a similar time-frame. Although the facility we are discussing was extremely small, it was a purpose-built pair of petrol stations on an isolated section of new dual carriageway, so it is actually a very early example of a service station as we would recognise it.
Today you will find the site of the service station near the M4 between J42 and J43. The old A48 and its service station were left abandoned, but in 2012 they were turned into a housing estate called Cae Morfa. The new road runs right down the middle of where the A48 would have been.
