Resurfacing works will be taking place on the M4 this summer to make roads smoother and safer journeys for drivers.
The work is being carried out as part of central Government's investment into infrastructure and will involve resurfacing and drainage maintenance between junctions 10 for Reading East and 8/9 for Maidenhead.
Guy Watts, Highways Agency project sponsor, said: "As with all work we carry out, we plan so that any disruption is kept to a minimum and that is why work will take place overnight, when traffic flows are lowest, and with diversions in place when a section of the road is closed."
The overnight resurfacing work will begin with lane closures on the M4 eastbound at junction 10 starting tomorrow for 15 nights.
Work on the westbound carriageway will then start on June 18 for 12 nights, using full overnight road closures.
Drainage improvements are scheduled to start in July for five months, with hard shoulder and lane closures in place for this work to be safely carried out.
