Section of M5 near Bristol to close overnight

Overnight closures will come into force on the M5 near Bristol this week.

The motorway will be closed northbound through junction 15 from 22:00 BST until 06:00 BST on Monday and Tuesday night.

The scheme is part of work to deliver the M4 and M5 managed motorway scheme at the Almondsbury interchange.

The southbound carriageway will closed overnight on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and on 30 April and 1 May.

Managed motorways use a range of techniques, including variable speed limits, to control traffic.

Diversion routes will be in place during the closures, the Highways Agency said.
