Please find below an invitation to the public information event on Thursday 12/07/18 at the village hall and the Smart Motorways leaflet received June 2018.
I am writing to invite you to a public information event to mark the launch of main construction works on the M4 Junctions 3 (Hayes) to 12 (Theale) upgrade to smart motorway.
The construction will take place in two stages, with the initial stage starting at Junction 7 (Huntercombe) to 12 (Theale) this summer, and the second stage starting at Junction 7 to 3 in early 2019.

*July 2018 exhibitions are taking place around M4 junctions 7 to 12 where construction on this scheme will start. Further engagement will take place around junctions 3 to 7 in due course.
As you may recall, consent for the scheme was granted by the Secretary of State through the approval of the Development Consent Order (DCO) in September 2016. Since then we have been engaging with local authorities and statutory bodies to discharge the conditions attached to the made DCO.
Advance works started on the scheme in 2017 and this summer, full-scale mobilisation works will start, including the establishment of construction compounds and clearance of some sites. We will see related traffic management for the main works on the ground in late summer, starting initially from junction 8/9 in both directions.
A comprehensive program of communications and engagement with local communities and stakeholders is under way to raise awareness of the scheme.
We would be delighted to offer a one-to-one tour of our exhibition with a Highways England representative at an event of your choice. Please let me know (via the project team email address as detailed below) if you would like a tour and, if so, which venue would be most convenient.
Finally, we would grateful if you can share the attached leaflet widely around your organisation; and if you are able, please share the following link to it on your social and digital media channels – https://goo.gl/CDDbZb
