The M4 bus lane, said by many to be a major cause of congestion, is to be scrapped.
The 3.5-mile lane, which operates on the London-bound carriageway from near Heathrow Airport will be open to all traffic again. It will be suspended from 24 December this year for 18 months when the lane comes back into use for the Olympics, after which it will be scrapped for good. Transport Secretary Philip Hammond has confirmed the move, saying the bus lane was “not effective”.
