A £5 million scheme that will see improvement works carried out at junction 10 on the M4 near Reading is starting this weekend.

The improvements will widen slip roads and improve the road layout at the busy junction to ease congestion and improve traffic flows from the M4 onto the A329(M).

Highways Agency project sponsor Ed French said: “The additional capacity this scheme will bring will allow the junction to work more efficiently to reduce congestion and improve journey times. We have planned the work carefully to minimise disruption and will carry out as much of the work as possible overnight, when traffic flows are at their lowest.”

This scheme has been identified as a priority as junction 10 is a major interchange connecting the M4 with the A329(M). The junction is affected by peak time congestion, particularly as it merges from the M4 onto the A329(M), leading to traffic queues on the link roads back towards the M4.

The scheme is scheduled to be completed by June 2015.
