Resurfacing M5 Northbound Junction 20 - Junction 19

News - 26 September 2017

Highways England: Resurfacing M5 northbound junction 20 – junction 19

Highways England will be carrying out essential resurfacing on the M5 northbound, between junctions 20 and 19. Work will start on Monday 9 October 2017.

The resurfacing work will take approximately 8 weeks to complete.

To ensure the safety of our workforce and road users while the work is ongoing, it will be necessary to put a traffic management system in place. The majority of the work will be completed under lane closures.

However, a number of night-time closures (between 8pm and 6am) will be required to complete the work. Whilst these closures are in force, fully signed diversion routes will be in place. The dates of these closures and diversion route details are as follows:
