Highways England major maintenance on the M4/ J10

Highways England major maintenance on the M4/ J10

22 December 2016

From Monday 17 October Highways England (HE) is due to start work at Junction 10 of the M4, on two projects, on the slip roads linking the motorway with the A329(M).

One will focus on reconstructing the bridge foundations for the slip roads which cross over the M4, while the other will see concrete repairs made to the slip roads running beneath the A329(M).

During the scheme 24-hour narrowed lanes and a reduced speed limit will be in place at the junction on the M4. This will directly affect motorists leaving the M4 at J10 to get onto the A329(M) for Wokingham or Reading.

Although the work will be fully contained within the HE network, these restrictions will have some impact on nearby Wokingham Borough Council roads; so please be aware and plan your journeys in advance.

HE says the work is due to finish in November 2017, and will take place both day and night, seven days a week, depending on the phase of the scheme.

At certain dates during the next 13 months the slip roads will be closed overnight between 9pm and 6am, and HE says it will publicise these nearer the time as well as display them on signs at the junction.

Weekend closures of the slip roads are also planned, says HE, from 9pm Friday to 6am Monday. But it says only one slip road will be closed at a time. 

Following the major recent work it carried out at J10, HE says it wants to improve traffic flow through the junction and will do this work by March next year. HE says the aim of this additional work (in addition to the two schemes mentioned above) is to ease rush hour congestion on the A329(M).

While the three parts of this HE scheme are being carried out, Wokingham Borough Council will closely monitor their impact and work with HE to minimise any effects and manage any congestion.

Full details about the scheme and confirmed road closure dates will be on the Highways England website.
