PLANNED works on refurbishing the Broome Manor Lane bridge over the M4 near Swindon will begin on Monday.

Highways England will be carrying out a full bridge deck refurbishment of the overbridge, which crosses the M4 between junctions 15 and 16.

The work will see the road and footway closed to all traffic, including cyclists and pedestrians.

The work includes localised concrete repairs to deck and edge beams, replacing bridge joints and full waterproofing replacement over the structure.

It is expected to take around three months to complete. Highways England says the work should be completed by mid-June.

Some overnight lane closures will also be required on the M4 to carry out underbridge concrete repairs.

An appropriate diversion route will be in place to suit all vehicles.

Traffic will be diverted via the B4005 (Hodson Road, Brimble Hill and Marlborough Road), A4361 (Moormead Road, Swindon Road and Croft Road) and B4006 Pipers Way and vice versa. Please allow extra time for your journey.

These essential works will prevent deterioration and avoid the need to carry out further major works in the near future.
