M4 set for weekend closure

The M4 is set to close between Maidenhead and Slough over the weekend.

From 8pm on Friday to 6am on Monday, the motorway will be closed in both directions between junction 6 and junction 8/9 while construction works take place.

The works will see a steel beam installed on the Huntercombe Spur bridge over the motorway.

The construction work, which will be carried out by Highways England, is part of the smart motorway upgrade to the M4.

    Based on the size of the maintenance worker compound by the side of the M4 motorway and the number of vehicles there during the day I'm a bit surprised that by now you aren't doing work on three bridges simultaneously every weekend to finish this work much earlier. Why only one bridge at a time ? Seems obvious to me whilst things are quiet it makes perfect sense.
