M4 closure cancelled this weekend due to adverse weather

Highways England have tweeted that the planned closure of the M4 this weekend has been cancelled due to the adverse weather.

There was due to be a closure of the motorway for works between junction 13 (Chieveley) and Junction 12 (Theale) for Saturday and Sunday.

However, in the wake of Storm Alex, the Met Office have issued a yellow warning of heavy rain for South-East for this weekend. That led Highways England to abandon the planned closure.
