The announcement that Mabey Bridge has begun a consultation on the planned closure of its business in Station Road, Chepstow, where 150 people work, is shocking, especially as the news has broken just before Christmas. The Welsh Government needs to urgently step up and see what assistance can be given to the firm, especially as a buyer is being sought for its renewables section in Mathern, Chepstow, which employs 180 people. The company's infrastructure section makes highway bridges, railway bridges, footbridges and sign gantries while its renewables division builds wind turbine towers and carries out work in offshore renewable energy, the production of which would help with infrastructure investment and developing the renewable energy sector in Wales.
