THE M4 at Chieveley will be affected by overnight closures from tonight (Mon) and for eight nights.

The M4 westbound carriageway at junction 13 between the slip roads will be closed overnight, between 10pm and 6am, from tonight (Mon) and for 8 nights (Monday to Friday only).

A diversion will be in place via the exit and entry slip roads.

The work is to replace bridge joints, according to Highways England. 

Also, from Thursday night, for two nights, the M4 at Hungerford/junction 14, will be affected by lane closures, due to overnight drainage maintenance.

Lane closures will be in place between 9pm and 6am on the east and westbound approaches and at the junction.

Further along the M4, at junction 10/Wokingham, the exit slip road from the M4 westbound carriageway to the A329(M) Reading-bound carriageway will be closed from 9pm on Friday November 4, to 6am on Monday November 7, due to ongoing bridge reconstruction work. 

Work to refurbish the bridge, which carries the link roads over the M4 continues, with 24 hour, narrow lane running and a 40mph speed restriction in place on the slip roads, and a 50mph speed limit in place on the M4 carriageway, until November 2017.

A diversion will be in place via junction 11 and return.
