M5 night closures as motorway work continues
THE M5 will be closed through junction 15 at Almondsbury overnight for eight days from Monday as part of roadworks to install the M4/M5 managed motorway scheme.
The motorway will be closed in one direction at a time from 10am to 6pm from April 23 to May 1 while carriageway joint repairs and resurfacing work is carried out.
The northbound carriageway will be closed overnight on Monday and Tuesday, while the southbound lanes will be shut on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and again on April 30 and May 1. Diversion routes will be put in place.
From April 30 to May 4 there will also be some overnight closures of slip roads and links on the M4 and M5 at the interchange.

The overnight slip road and link road closures will be in place from 9pm to 6am, with clear diversions, at:
â the M4 eastbound junction 19 exit slip road will be closed overnight on April 30;
â the M4 westbound junction 19 entry slip road will be closed overnight on May 1;
â the M5 southbound junction 17 exit slip road will be closed overnight for two nights on May 2 and 3;
â the M4 eastbound to M5 northbound and M4 westbound to M5 northbound link roads will be closed overnight on May 4.
During the closures drivers are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys while diversion routes are in place.
The work is part of developing the managed motorway scheme, which will introduce variable speed limits and allow the hard shoulder to be used as an extra traffic lane on the M4 between junctions 19 and 20 and the M5 between junction 15 and junction 17.
Work is due to be completed in spring 2014.
