M4 motorway: Motorway in the United Kingdom
The M4, a motorway in the United Kingdom running from west London to southwest Wales, was originally referred to as the London-South Wales Motorway. The English section to the Severn Bridge was constructed between 1961 and 1971; the Welsh element was completed in 1993. The construction of the Second Severn Crossing, officially renamed the Prince of Wales Bridge and inaugurated on 5 June 1996 by the Prince of Wales, caused the M4 to be rerouted.
