Work to improve journeys on the M3 and A316 near Sunbury, Surrey, will start next week.
A 1.5 mile section of carriageway between the M3 junction 1 and the A316 junction with the A312 will be resurfaced.
The work is due to start on Monday 18 June and, weather permitting, will be complete by Friday 29 June. It will involve overnight carriageway and slip road closures. Clearly signed diversions will be in place.
Clive Cooper, Highways Agency Asset Manager, said:
"The work will provide road users with a smoother and safer surface. The old surface has come to the end of its life cycle and will be replaced to improve safety and the quality of the road.
"It has been carefully planned to minimise disruption to road users, and so will be carried out in five phases, and overnight, when traffic flows are lowest, to minimise disruption."
The work is being carried out between 10pm and 5.30am Monday to Thursdays and between 11pm and 6am on Fridays. No work is planned for the weekend, however if work is required then it will be carried out between 10pm and 6am on Saturdays and 10.30pm and 5.30am on Sundays.
The eastbound A316 carriageway will be closed between the M3 junction 1 and its junction with the A312 Uxbridge Road on Wednesday 20 June. Road users will be directed to follow a fully signed diversion route via the A308, A3008, A311 and A312.
The westbound M3 will be closed between the exit and entry slip roads at junction 1 from Monday 25 June to Wednesday 27 June. The diversion will be via the junction 1 roundabout.
The westbound A316 exit slip road to Park Road will be closed on Monday 25 June and Tuesday 26 June. The diversion will be via the M3 junction 1 roundabout, A308 Staines Road East and Hanworth Road.
The westbound M3 exit slip road at junction 1 will be closed on Wednesday 27 June. Road users will be directed via the M25 junction 11; non-motorway traffic will be diverted via Park Road and the A308.
The M25 link roads to the eastbound M3 will be closed on Thursday 28 June. The diversion will be via the M3 junction 3.
