M5 overnight closure

Councillor Andrew Gravells , our local county councillor , has been informed by Highways England in Bristol  that there  will be an overnight closure of the  M5 southbound between J11a and J12 on Friday 27 November 2020, in order to remove their  traffic management.  The closure will begin at 8.30pm and end at 6am the following morning.  If it’s possible to reopen the road sooner they will do so.

The  diversion route will be via the A38 between M5 J11a and J12. Traffic will be directed off the M5 southbound at J11a to the roundabout and then to the A417 heading towards Gloucester, from there motorists will follow the A38 to re-join the M5 at J12.

They  will be removing temporary traffic management which will include steel varioguard and stick on road studs, so although this wouldn’t normally be classed as noisy (no heavy machinery etc) some noise may be audible. They will ask their  site staff to minimise noise wherever possible
