The collision happened between a Park & Ride bus and a 4×4, and has closed the road in both directions.
Emergency service crews are working at the scene.
Unconfirmed reports suggest the Nissan Terrano 4×4 had pulled out onto the Upper Bristol Road when it was involved in the collision with the Newbridge P&R bus.
