National Highways - 31st August 2021

National Highways operates, maintains and improves England’s motorways and major A roads. As part of our commitment to safety and the environment we need to carry out work on dead or dying trees along the M4 between Severn Beach and Swindon.

A recent survey identified a number of trees which need to be removed or otherwise made safe where they may pose a hazard to road users or third-party property. Replacement planting will be included in next year’s work programme.

Work will take place during the day and we anticipate each site will take 1 to 3 shifts to complete. For the safety of our workforce hard shoulder closures will be in place.

Please accept our apologies in advance for any disruption this may cause, we’ll make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community is kept to a minimum.

We always aim to work to programme, however unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions may mean changes. We’ll keep you updated via advance roadside warning signs, but please also monitor

If you would like further information about this work, please contact National Highways Customer Contact Centre on Tel: 0300 123 5000 (open 24/7) and they will direct your enquiry to the most appropriate person, or by email:

As of 20 August 2021, Highways England has been renamed National Highways. The name change reflects the role of the strategic road network – to connect the nations regions – and the part it plays in setting Highways standards across the UK.

The remit of the organisation has not changed and we will continue to operate and maintain England’s motorways and A roads.
