Highways England plans, builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and major A roads. They will shortly be carrying out roadworks near to you.
Essential surfacing works need to be carried out on the southbound carriageway of the M5 between junctions 30 and 31. We will also carry out bridge joint repair, linning and stud (cats eye) work. To minimise disruption, we’ll work overnight when there are fewer vehicles on the road. During the day the carriageway will remain open as usual.

The work will start on the evening of 14 October and finish on the morning of 2 November 2019. All work will take place at night time, between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday only.
