M5 junction 6 to junction 7 safety barrier replacement

Update – January 2023

Please find below an update with regards to the required traffic management at this location throughout January. These closures have been designed so we can continue with the installation of new lighting columns.

From Monday 23 January to Friday 27 January, M5 southbound only will be reduced down to 1 x lane running between junction 6 and junction 7, 8pm to 6am.

From Monday 30 January to Thursday 2 February, M5 northbound only will be reduced down to 1 x lane running between junction 7 and junction 6, including a full closure of the M5 junction 7 northbound entry slip, 8pm to 6am.

To reduce disruption, we’ll work overnight between Monday and Friday- no weekend working. During closures of the entry slips, we’ll install a fully signed diversion.

Please plan ahead and allow additional time for your journey.
