M4 Junction 16 improvement works

Swindon Borough Council is undertaking major works to remodel Junction 16 of the M4. This scheme is part of our plan to improve roads across the network and further enhance the growth and economy of Swindon and Wiltshire.

The scheme will be funded by the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the Wichelstowe Joint Venture. It is being delivered by Swindon Borough Council in partnership with Highways England and Wiltshire Council.

Works are now underway and will ensure the major highway interchange can cope with forecast future traffic levels and cater for future development in the surrounding areas.

Hochtief (UK) Construction Ltd is carrying out the work, which is expected to be complete by Spring 2018.

The junction will be open to traffic at all times, with the exception of the occasional overnight closure, but there is likely to be some disruption to motorists.
