M4 Weekend Closures Announced
27 Oct 2017

The Highways Agency has issued the following road notice for the M4.

Between August 2017 and June 2018, Highways England is undertaking essential repairs to three bridges which carry the M4 over the B4009 Hampstead Norreys Road, Brocks Lane and Burnt Hill Road near Hermitage in West Berkshire.

This work will involve road resurfacing, replacing the central reservation deck beams, bridge joints and sections of safety barrier. During works to demolish and install the large bridge deck beams, we will need to shut the M4 between junctions 12 and 13 on selected weekends, from 9pm Friday through to 5am Monday.

These closures are currently planned for:

  • Friday 24 to Monday 27 November 2017
  • Friday 08 to Monday 11 December 2017
  • Friday 15 to Monday 18 December 2017
  • Friday 12 to Monday 15 January 2018
  • Friday 19 to Monday 22 January 2018 (contingency)

A clearly signed diversion will be in place via the A4 (through Newbury, Thatcham and Woolhampton).
