Gloucestershire motorists warned to expect delays


Motorists have been warned to add extra time to their due to repairs to two motorway bridges.

The repairs are taking place at the Brockworth Interchange – junction 11a – on the M5 in Gloucestershire.

The bridges on the exit slip roads are now more than 50-years-old and in need of refurbishment.

Waterproofing, surfacing, expansion joints and concrete repairs are needed to maintain the bridges.

The bridge works, which will involve some lane closures, are taking place until Christmas.

Resurfacing work between junctions 11 and 12 is under way and is set to be completed by 10 October.

All the works have been timed to avoid the peak summer holiday travel season and will be completed before Christmas.

They will be carried out overnight between Monday to Friday.
