The eastbound stretch of the motorway from junction 5 at Langley to junction 4b for the M25 interchange will be shut from Saturday morning until the early hours of Monday, March 21. Eastbound entry slip roads on to the motorway will also be closed.

There will be a signed diversion in place taking drivers off the M4 and onto the A4 eastbound, A3044 southbound, A3113 eastbound, M25 clockwise at junction 14 to junction 15 where they can rejoin the M4. Next weekend will also see a carriageway closure, as National Highways looks to complete work on the smart motorway which runs from junction 3 at Hayes to junction 12 at Theale.
