Second Severn Crossing resurfacing work postponed

Resurfacing and waterproofing work due to take place between June 9 and July 14 on the M4 Second Severn Crossing have been postponed until September.

Severn River Crossing (SRC), who operates and maintains both Severn Crossings under a Concession Agreement with the Highways Agency, has reluctantly had to postpone the eastbound resurfacing of lane one due to difficulties encountered in the procurement process of this technically and logistically difficult task.

Following consultation with the Highways Agency, SRC agreed that to continue would have resulted in a risk that the works would run into the school summer holiday period.

Details of the new dates will be published as soon as they are available.
