Drivers are being warned there could be delays on the roads in the weeks ahead.
The M4 maintence project will continue on a two mile stretch between junctions 5 and 6 near Slough with narrow lanes in place and a 50mph speed limit in place. Work should be completed by March 18.
Streetlighting near junction 7 is also being improved with 123 streetlights replaced. The work will be carried out in three phases, each focussing on a separate section of road. Phase 1, currently underway, will see work carried out on the southbound Huntercombe Spur Road and the eastbound entry slip road at Junction 7. Phase 2 will be on the northbound Huntercombe Spur Road and the eastbound exit slip road at Junction 7.
Finally Phase 3 will see work on the westbound entry and exit slip roads at Junction 7. The hard shoulder of the slip roads and the spur roads will be closed throughout the scheme, and there will be additional restrictions overnight when traffic flows are lowest – including some closures of the slip roads themselves, when fully signed diversions will be in place. Work is expected to be complete at the end of March.
M4 Junction 8/9 - safety improvement work starts this week to replace the joints on the Windsor Road Bridge, which carries the M4 motorway over the A308 Windsor Road (Bray). Work starts on Monday for seven weeks with overnight lane closures on both carriageways to install the traffic management, which will include 24 hour narrow lanes and a 50mph speed restriction.
M4 Junction 8/9 – starting on Monday for three nights the eastbound carriageway of the M4 between junctions 8/9 and 7 will be closed while resurfacing work near junction 7 is carried out. The closures will be in place between 10pm and 6am each night, and a clearly signed diversion route will direct traffic along the A308 Windsor Road to rejoin the M4 motorway at Junction 6.
Work to fell trees along secions of the A404 and A404 (M) started on Monday and will continue next week. Work is being carried out between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday with a lane closure both northbound and southbound.
