M4 closures this weekend near M25 and Heathrow set to cause delays

Smart motorway works on the M4 will see the road closed for a full weekend.

The motorway will be shut between the Langley and the M25 interchange, from late on Friday, February 11 to the early hours of Monday, February 14.

Drivers travelling to London and Heathrow Airport will be among those affected by the latest closure, which is part of the National Highways project to make the road four running lanes.

The roll out of the controversial smart motorways programme was halted earlier this year while more data is gathered, but this hasn't stopped work from continuing between junction 3 for Hayes and junction 12 at Theale.

All traffic will be diverted off the M4 as it closes for the entire weekend.

The road will be closed in both directions between junction 5 for Langley and junction 4b for the M25, from 11pm on Friday, February 11 until 5.30am on Monday, February 14.

The M25 link roads from junction 15 to junction 4b will also be closed throughout the weekend. Drivers will be diverted off the motorway and should follow the signed diversion.
