Further to my letter in May, I wanted to advise that resurfacing work along the M4 between junctions 12 and 15 is ongoing and progressing well.

In July we have the first of our weekend closures along the M4. These are required as some sections of resurfacing will replace all layers down to the foundations. To allow time for the materials to harden, we will undertake this work whilst closing the M4 over entire weekend periods.

The first weekend closure is scheduled to take place from 9pm on Friday 3 July through to 6am on Monday 6 July 2020, and will be a closure of the M4 westbound carriageway between junction 13 and junction 14.

Further weekend closures have been scheduled for the following dates, but are subject to change:

  • Friday 4 to Monday 7 September – M4 westbound between junction 13 and junction 14
  • Friday 11 to Monday 14 September – M4 eastbound between junction 15 and junction 14
  • Friday 2 to Monday 5 October – M4 eastbound between junction 13 and junction 12

Significant delays are expected during these weekend closures. We advise you to plan your journey and allow extra time or avoid this route if possible.

Please be aware that due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic, all our works are subject to change due to available resource by our Supply Chain, as well as possible adverse weather conditions – confirmed dates/timings for all closures will be displayed in advance on large yellow signs alongside the M4.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption during our work. If you have any questions, or if you’d like you know more about our work please email us at info@highwaysengland.co.uk or call us on 0300 123 5000.
