Traffic affected by the closures would be directed to leave and re-join the carriageway when the section closure is between the slips at a single junction; otherwise diverted via other junctions of the M4, and by using the M25, M40, A308(M), A329(M), A404(M), A4, A33, A40, A308, A312, A332, A339, A355, A3290, A3044, A3113, B3270, Rose Kiln Lane, Wharfedale Road, Nene Road, East Ramp, West Ramp, and Tunnel Roads East and West.
