Project Update: M4

Highways England will be converting the M4 Junction 3-12 into a smart motorway.  The smart motorway section will run from Theale in the west, past Reading, Berkshire, all the way to Hayes in west London.

The project is currently at an exciting time. Preparation work, which includes further design, archaeological and site surveys, began in 2016 leading to the main construction work which will start in Autumn 2018. 

During construction, narrow lanes and reduced speed restrictions will be put in place to create a fluid and safe flow of traffic through the works and to ensure safety for workers. Additionally, traffic management barriers will be present. Three narrow lanes will be available for road users during peak hours. By Spring 2022 the motorway should be fully open and operational.
