£3 Million M4 Roadworks Start

28 January 2013, 06:00

There'll be some lane closures as the Highways Agency spends 4 weeks resurfacing the M4 near Chieveley.

A two mile section of both carriageways at junction 13 will be resurfaced with lane and slip road closures in place during the £3 million programme.

Guy Watts, Highways Agency project sponsor, said: "Besides resurfacing we will also increase the skid resistance at this area and enhance the road markings, providing safer, smoother, journeys for road users."

The improvement work will start on the eastbound carriageway today, Monday 28 January. It will continue until Friday 8 February when it will switch to the westbound carriageway until Friday 22 February. It will be carried out each night between 10pm and 6am.

While work is carried out, either the hard shoulder or lane 3 will be available for traffic, depending on the progress of work. There will also be some slip road closures which, along with the associated diversions, will be clearly signed.
