Route outline (key)
A455 Coldra - Newport
This article is about the second incarnation of A455, a road in Newport linking George Street Bridge to the M4 J24.
For the original, a road between Birmingham and Stafford that is now part of the A34, see A455 (Birmingham - Stafford)
.
The A48 (former A455) Ringland Way

The A455 was an upgrade of the B4004 Ringland Way, Spytty Road and Corporation Road in Newport, running from the M4 J24 to George Street Bridge. The road thus bypassed the eastern suburbs but either had to return to the A48 past the city centre or cross the transporter bridge to continue westwards.

On the completion of the city's Southern Distributor Road in 2004 the A48 was routed along the Ringland Way and Spytty Road sections, with Corporation Road becoming unclassified.
