The Department regularly engages with the Welsh Government to ensure a coordinated, joined up approach to investment in the strategic road network. The Department is in consultation with the ports and logistics industry, in order to help ensure that movement through ports and across borders is as frictionless as possible, whatever the outcome of negotiations on future arrangements for trade with the EU.
