**NEW** M4 Junctions 12 to 13 – Bridge Refurbishment Works

M4 weekend closures

As with the previous scheme, during work to demolish and install the bridge deck beams, specialist working methods and equipment will be required which will include larger cranes that will sit across all lanes of the motorway.  We will therefore need to fully close the M4 east and westbound carriageways between junctions 12 and 13 for entire weekend periods (9pm Friday through to 5am Monday).

The first of these closures is expected to be in late-November 2017 – confirmed dates will be advertised in advance on signs along the M4, on the Highways England website and via the media.
