First published in News

ROAD users are advised that the southbound M5 between Junction 11a and junction 12 will be closed overnight while two 27 metre long bridge beams are removed.

A closure of the B4073 underneath the bridge between Corncroft Lane and Birchall Lane will also be needed to ensure the safety of road users.

The work, which is part of s comprehensive package of bridge safety improvements and maintenance to benefit road users on the M5 near Gloucester, will take place between 8pm and 6am.

Clearly signed diversions will be in place for both closures.

Road users travelling south on the M5 will be advised to leave the motorway at junction 11a follow the A417 westbound to the Shurdington Roundabout, then turn round and join the A417 eastbound to the Barnwood roundabout, then follow the A38 southbound to rejoin the M5 at J12.

Full details and regular updates on the works, including videos and photos, can be found on our dedicated M5 Gloucestershire Bridge Works Facebook page here.
