M4 / M5 interchange Dynamic Hard Shoulder enhancements
National Highways - 15th February 2023
We are starting work later this month to upgrade a six-mile section of motorway around the Almondsbury interchange, to further improve driver safety.
The work, on the M4 between junction 19 for Bristol and where it meets the M5 at the Almondsbury interchange, and on the M5 to junction 17 at Cribbs Causeway, includes:
- upgrading a 4-mile section of existing steel barrier to concrete in the central reservation of the M4 around Almondsbury interchange
- building three new emergency areas on the M5
- upgrading traffic signs to provide better information for drivers
- drainage work
- renewing lighting
- additional CCTV cameras
We’re planning to complete the work on both sections of motorway in winter 2023.
