M4/M5 – Almondsbury

A SERIES of closures will affect drivers using the M5 from tonight.

They are to allow work on part of the Highways Agency’s Smart Motorways Scheme which will see temporary speed limit signs, speed cameras and hard-shoulder driving at peak hours introduced on the motorway.

The first closure affects the Cribbs Causeway junction, where the northbound exit and southbound entry slip roads will be closed overnight tonight, from 9pm until 6am tomorrow.

The same slip roads will be closed tomorrow night, again from 9pm until 6am on Monday.

Next week there will be full carriageway closures, with the entire motorway shut in both directions between the Almondsbury interchange with the M4 and the Cribbs Causeway junction from 10pm on Monday until 6am on Tuesday.

In addition there will be no access to the M4 from the Patchway junction with the A38, as the sliproads merge with the M5 at the Almondsbury interchange.

All slip roads and link roads will be shut from 9pm on Monday.

On Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday the M5 will be closed northbound between Cribbs Causeway and Patchway, and southbound from Falfield to the Almondsbury interchange, from 10pm each evening until 6am the following day.

Slip roads and link roads joining the main carriageway will be closed from 9pm.

On Wednesday the M4 will shut in both directions between the Hambrook junction with the M32 and the Almondsbury interchange, from 10pm until 6am on Thursday, with slip roads closing from 9pm.

The £88 million traffic-management scheme, which has taken almost four years to install, went live on the M4 in November and aims to cut congestion by improving traffic flows on both motorways in the area around the Almondsbury interchange.
