M4 traffic latest: ‘SEVERE’ delays on M4 cause major queues and chaos going into London

The AA has reported there are serious congestion delays on the M4 near Slough. Their traffic news tracker has notified early morning commuters that there are severe delays on the M4 eastbound between J6 A355 Royal Windsor Way (Slough / Windsor) and J4B, M25 and J15.

The road is one of the main channels for commuters from Reading to Cardiff getting into London.

The AA says there are currently delays of around twenty minutes.

It says the average speed of cars on the road is at 5mph.

Just ahead of the junction, it reports that there is queuing just ahead of the congestion, Eastbound from J5 off the A4 London Road (Langley) to J4B off the M25.

This queuing further on has likely caused the congestion just north of Brands Hill and Colnbrook.

It says there is a construction area along the road.

In other traffic news, last night, traffic was held on the M25 after a vehicle caught fire near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

Traffic officers shut the road, which caused four miles of tailbacks.
