4 February – 7 February 2022 – full weekend closure between junctions 6 and 8/9.​

The M4 will be closed in both directions over the weekend of 4 February – 7 February 2022 between Junctions 6 (Slough-Windsor) and 8/9 (Maidenhead).
The closure will start after 8pm Friday 4 February and the motorway will reopen by 6am on Monday 7 February.


It's almost like they do it on purpose, it was the same for the Charlton game.

Been like that for months - setting up the M4 as a Smart Motorway. Detour down to the A30/303 from junction 13 (A34 through Newbury) or junction 10 through Basingstoke and the onto the M3. Go to M25 for A3 and go in that way to the south of London. I go via Putney.

I thought works on smart (their word) motorways had been paused?

I should imagine that it takes a while to fill in stuff, replace signage, paint up, replace barriers and move plant.

It's a bit FUBAR with regards to travel on that weekend. There will also no doubt be an insufficient number of rail replacement coaches.

You’d like to think that they will know the number of tickets they have sold BUT Covid absences could limit the number of coach drivers they have at their disposal.

I that case, the M4 closureshould not affect you except for more traffic in the local roads. Certainly M3 junction 6 for the A339, links on to the A33, to Reading would be logical.

I looked at doing something like that but unless I've not found the best deal/website etc it came to around £175 for myself and two under-16's.
