Roadworks: Southern Perimeter Road near Terminal 4

Essential maintenance work is expected to cause congestion at peak times on the Southern Perimeter Road west of Terminal 4 until 30th June.

The work will include a contraflow system, reducing traffic to a single lane in each direction between Stirling Road and Seaford Road traffic lights.

If you're travelling to Terminal 4, we advise you to approach via the A30 to avoid delays to your journey. Passengers for other terminals should use the M25 and/or M4.

If you plan to get between Terminals 4 and 5 using bus routes 482 or 490, which run via the Southern Perimeter, please check the current service status with Transport for London.
