Bad news if you’re planning on going away over the June long weekend.

The M4 Motorway will be shut down as work continues on The Northern Road upgrade.

A new bridge is now open over the M4 at The Northern Road which means the original bridge now needs to be removed.

The M4 will be closed from 9pm on Friday, June 7 until 4am on Tuesday, June 11.

Vehicles will still be able to enter and exit the M4 in both directions at The Northern Road during the closure, however traffic is expected to be busy.
