Weight restriction removed from Boston Manor viaduct
A programme of repair work on the Boston Manor viaduct which carries the M4 in has been substantially completed, and the temporary weight restriction between junctions 1 and 3 has been removed.
All eligible vehicles are now able to use the motorway between the junctions.
The work on the Boston Manor Viaduct just west of junction 2 began in May after a routine inspection found cracks in the structure and a temporary weight restriction was put into operation so the work could be carried out safely.
The restriction was removed this Sunday.
The remaining work to complete the repairs, which includes painting parts of the structure, will be carried out without the need for restrictions on the M4.
Routine maintenance work, which is part of the Highways Agency’s long term stewardship of the structure, will continue.
Road users and the local community are thanked for their patience during the work.
