M4 J11 Reading

Scheme outline

Reconstruction of M4 junction 11, the connection point for the A33 and large parts of Reading. The junction improvements will add a new gyratory system around the outside of the existing roundabout, with the current bridges used for a bus priority route through the middle of the new junction. It will facilitate park and ride facilities that are proposed close to the site.

This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
