5. permit HGVs in the outside lane of the lengths of carriageway described in 1. (a) to (c) above, during inside-lane closures.

These measures are in the interests of road safety while contractors undertake Programmed Cyclical Maintenance (drainage, lighting, signage, inspections and surveys, maintenance and clearance of vegetation, litter picking and clearance, road sweeping, emergency crossing point maintenance, road markings and road studs, electrical loop works, barrier maintenance and clearance of injurious weeds). The duration of each closure will vary depending on the nature of the maintenance work being undertaken on each occasion. The programme of works will start on or after 1st January 2020. Overnight closures taking place on the M4 and connecting roads between Junctions 5 and 15 will be in operation between 21:00 and 06:00 (maximum period).
The overnight closures on the M4 between Junctions 1 and 5 and the M25 will be in operation between (maximum period):
Monday-Thursdays 22:00-05:30
Fridays 23:00 - 06:00
Saturdays 22:00 - 06:00
Sundays 22:30 - 05:30

Planned maintenance work will be scheduled to avoid disruption during known peak periods, although essential maintenance may be necessary during these periods to prevent the need for emergency works. In such cases less disruptive options will be considered. The Order will come into force on 1st January 2020 and shall remain in force until 23rd December 2020.
Traffic affected by the closures will be diverted via other junctions of the M25and the M4, or by using the M11, M40, A1, A1(M), A4, A10, A33, A34, A41, A308, A308(M), A312, A322, A327, A329(M), A338, A339, A355, A404(M), A404, A405, A406, A412, A414, A419, A1081, A3044, A3113, A3290, A4155, and the B4192.
