Work begins on M4 underpass this week
From Monday (18 May) the latest phase of work will begin on the Wichelstowe Southern Access (WSA), which will create a new route into one of Swindon’s newest housing developments.
In order to facilitate the underpass, both carriageways of the motorway will be moved onto a newly-created embankment over the coming weeks.
To prepare for the work to begin, the M4 will be closed between junction 15 and 16 (overnight only) from Monday 18 – Wednesday 20 May. Throughout the day, all lanes will be kept open in both directions however some lanes will be narrowed. From Tuesday 19 May, 50mph speed restrictions will be in place for a two kilometre stretch between junctions 15 and 16.
