M4 Junction 12 Reading Carriageway Maintenance Work
I am writing to inform you that the Highways Agency will be carrying out maintenance work to address surface defects on the slip roads at junction 12 (exit for Reading), and along a section of the eastbound carriageway near Theale.
For the safety of the workforce and to keep overall disruption to a minimum, work is scheduled to be carried out between 10pm and 6am (Monday to Friday), when traffic flows are at their lowest, as follows:
· Monday 12 August for four nights – Resurfacing the eastbound exit slip road, and a stretch of lane 2 of the eastbound carriageway, between Malpas and junction 12. The slip road will be closed each night and there will be lane closures on the main M4 eastbound carriageway.
· Friday 16 August for five nights – Resurfacing the eastbound entry slip road at junction 12. The slip road will be closed each night.
· Friday 13 September for two nights – Resurfacing the westbound entry slip road at junction 12. The slip road will be closed each night.
During the closures of the slip roads, clearly signed diversion routes will be in place either via junction 11 (for the westbound entry and eastbound exit slip roads) or junction 13 (for the eastbound entry slip road).
Please be aware that these works have been carefully programmed but may be postponed at short notice due to circumstances beyond our control (i.e. poor weather conditions or emergency works).
Advance warning of the closures will be displayed on black and yellow signs at the junction.
