M5 J19 southbound entry slip (near Gordano services, Bristol)

M5 J19 southbound entry-slip overnight closure - 11 January 2021

Highways England plans, builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and

major A roads.

M5 J19 improvement works

This junction often becomes gridlocked during peak traffic flow. In order to alleviate

congestion we’re reconfiguring the slip lanes and roundabout to allow traffic to flow more

freely. We’re co-ordinating our works with Wales and West Utility Company to minimise

disruption to motorists. During the next phase of works we’ll need to close the

southbound entry-slip overnight for the safety of our workforce.

Overnight closure: 8pm 11 January 2021 to 6am the following morning

The southbound entry-slip road will be closed overnight. Access to Gordano Services will

be unaffected. Clearly signed diversion routes will be in place as agreed with North

Somerset and Bristol City Council. Please note: the B3124 is unsuitable for heavy

vehicles and does not form part of our diversion route, we would encourage all drivers to

stick to the officially signed diversion route.

We will keep you informed via advance roadside warning signs. You can also follow us

on Twitter @HighwaysSWEST for up to date information, alternatively please visit


We always aim to work to the programme, however unforseen circumstances or

adverse weather conditions may mean changes to it. We will make every effort to

ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to a minimum.

Thank you for your patience whilst these essential works are carried out. If you have

any questions about this work or would like further information, please contact

Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email:


Yours faithfully
