A diversion was in place while the carriageway was closed, leading to heavy congestion on all routes through Hungerford, Aldbourne and Marlborough as traffic tried to avoid the closure.

The eastbound carriageway of the M4, between junctions 15 and 14, as well as the westbound carriageway between junction 13 at Chieveley and Hungerford are still also experiencing long delays.
