Highways England - 27th April 2020

Highways England plans, builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and major A roads. I am writing to let you know we will shortly be carrying out roadworks near to you.

The works

Highways England’s priority at the moment is to play its part in keeping the country safe and support the movement of essential supplies, services and people who cannot work from home. We continue to carry out necessary repairs on our roads in preparation for traffic flows returning to normal.

The road surface of the M5 J15 to J16 (and associated slip roads) has deteriorated with age and needs to be replaced. To carry out the work safely we will need to close M4 J20 westbound exit-slip. Works will be carried out in 2 phases, overnight when there are fewer vehicles on the road. During the day we will keep the carriageway open as usual. We would like to apologise in advance for any disruption this may cause.

Please note: all road works will be undertaken Monday to Friday overnight between 8pm and 6am the following morning. There will be no works on bank holidays.

Traffic management

Phase 1: 30 April to 8 May 2020

M4 J20 westbound exit-slip closure (closing link road to M5 north and south bound). Motorists will be diverted via M4 westbound, exit and turn at J22, return on M4 eastbound and exit at J20.

Phase 2: 11 to 22 May 2020

M4 J20 westbound exit-slip closure (closing link road to M5 southbound only) Motorists will be diverted via M4 westbound to join M49 southbound, exit at J18 to join M5 southbound.

M5 southbound link road to J16 closure. Motorists will be diverted via M5 southbound, exit and turn at J17, to join M5 northbound and exit at J16.

We always aim to work to the programme, however unforseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions may mean changes to it. We’ll notify you of major changes via advance roadside warning signs, but please also monitor to keep up to date. We will make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and motorists is kept to a minimum.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000 or by email:

Yours faithfully
