M4 Junction 16 progress
The team at Junction 16 has made great progress and as the project enters its final stages, the team are starting to finalise and complete various areas.
This week the traffic lights have been switched from the temporary heads to the new permanent heads, however, the new loops are not yet operational so the traffic lights continue to run off the fixed time sequence. The new vehicle detection loops are currently being commissioned and this will change over shortly.
Elsewhere on site the remaining surfacing is being carried out, there are some landscaping works in progress, the top-soiling of various areas and the installation of fences.
There are no planned overnight closures at Junction 16 over the next fortnight. The right hand turn from Royal Wootton Bassett to Hay Lane, Wroughton is expected to be open from Tuesday, 8 May.
