East-bound M4 to be completely shut near Swindon over the weekend

Drivers travelling from the Swindon area to London over the weekend have been warned that the M4 is closing in two areas.

The stretch of motorway between junction 14 for Hungerford and junction 13 for Chieveley and will be shut from 9pm tomorrow to 6am on Sunday.

Drivers heading towards London will be redirected through Hungerford to the A4 and along to Newbury to the A34 by a diversion.

An additional closure in a different spot on the M4 towards London will also take place on Sunday.

The road between junction 8/9 for High Wycombe and junction 6 for Slough will be shut from five past midnight on Sunday, until 6am on Monday.

Highways England has confirmed that both closures won’t happen at the same time, with the Slough closure only starting when the Hungerford closure is reopened.
