Extension to M5 Tredington Bridge Work

We have received an update from Highways England regarding the M5 Tredington bridge deck refurbishment scheme.

 The original dates were that the full closure of the overbridge would be in place until Sunday 24 February and that the overall scheme would be completed by Sunday 17 March 2019.

 Due to unexpected defects found in some of the concrete, which require further repairs, these dates have changed as the programme has been extended.

 The revised dates for completion of the scheme are now as follows:

 Phase 1 – total closure of the overbridge – now scheduled for completion on Friday 3 May 2019

Phase 2 – temporary two-way traffic lights and end of the scheme – now scheduled for completion on Thursday 30 May 2019

The diversion route for the full closure of the overbridge will remain the same.  Diversion Route


Please note that whilst we always aim to work to the programme, unforeseen circumstances may mean slight changes to it. We will always aim to notify you of any major changes within the programme, but please monitor<> to keep up-to-date.


If you have any queries or comments about the works and would like further information, please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email:<>.
