M4 Closures - Update
19 Jun 2017

The Highways Agency has issued the following road closure update for the M4

M4 Junctions 12 to 13: Bridge Refurbishment - Update

I am writing to provide an update to the programme and additional traffic management information for the bridge refurbishment works taking place along the M4 near Bradfield.

As you may already know, long-term monitoring found that the two bridges which carry the M4 over Ashampstead Road and Dark Lane, near Bradfield in West Berkshire, require extensive repairs due to chloride-induced corrosion. Critical repairs are underway to address the defects and ensure the structures remain in a safe and serviceable condition. We are pleased to say that the works are progressing well.

Closures next week

In addition to the 24 hour traffic management currently in place, the M4 eastbound carriageway between junctions 13 and 12 will be closed overnight on Sunday 18 June, between 9pm and 6am.

The eastbound carriageway between junctions 13 and 12 will also be closed overnight on Friday 23 June and Sunday 25 June, between 9pm and 6am.

Advance warning signs have been put up and a clearly signed diversion route will be in place via the A4 for these closures.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience these works may cause.

If you have any questions or if you'd like to know more about the work please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre:
