Reminder from Highways England – A34/M4 Junction 13 Chieveley

This is a reminder that starting next week, work will be taking place to remove and replace the road surface and its foundations, and renew the road markings around the entire A34/M4 junction 13 roundabout at Chieveley.

We are led by the safety of road users and our workers when we plan roadworks. As this section of road is busy and we need time for materials to harden, we will be closing the entire roundabout at the junction on the following times and dates:

  • 10pm on Friday 7 June through to 6am on Monday 10 June
  • 10pm on Friday 14 June through to 6am on Monday 17 June
  • 10pm on Friday 21 June through to 6am on Monday 24 June
  • 10pm on Friday 28 June through to 6am on Monday 1 July
  • 10pm on Friday 5 July through to 6am on Monday 8 July
  • 10pm on Friday 12 July through to 6am on Monday 15 July
  • 10pm on Friday 26 July through to 6am on Monday 29 July (Contingency weekend subject to change)

Significant delays are expected during these weekend closures. We advise you plan ahead of your journey and allow extra time or avoid this route if possible.

 

When the roundabout is closed signed diversions will be in place which primarily go via the A4 between junction 12 (Theale) and junction 14 (Shefford Woodlands).

A34 traffic will need to exit at Speen then head towards Hungerford for the M4 westbound carriageway, or towards Theale for the M4 eastbound carriageway.

M4 westbound traffic wishing to access the A34 is advised to exit at junction 12 and travel west along the A4; and M4 eastbound traffic wishing to access the A34 is advised to exit and junction 14 and travel east along the A4.

Local traffic wishing to access the A34 southbound carriageway or M4 from Graces Lane (Chieveley) will be diverted along the B4009 from Hermitage to Newbury, west along the A4 to Speen then either onto the A34 or along the A4 to Hungerford, then north on the A338 to join the M4 at junction 14.

When the roundabout is closed access to the Moto Service Area and Hilton Hotel will be maintained from the A34 northbound carriageway only.

These works are subject to change if weather is bad or due to unforeseen circumstances.

Confirmed dates for these weekend closures will be advertised in advance on signs along the M4, on the Highways England website and via the media.

We apologise for any inconvenience or disruption caused during our work. If you have any questions, or if you’d like to know about our work please contact us on 0300 123 5000 or email info@highwaysengland.co.uk
