The main motorway link from London to Heathrow Airport has been closed to all traffic after a crack was found in a "sensitive area" of the road structure.

The M4 is shut between junctions one and three and is expected to remain closed for up to five days.




I'd expect the rail links to be very busy.

Well that's going to really bad for traffic. And with the Olympics the timing couldnt be worse. :(

The British Grand Prix is today. So is Wimbledon.

They say the M4 will reopen before the Olympics.

There are other airports, but the majority of flights from the US go to LHR.
