M5 junctions 17 to 18: driver information and queue protection

Theresa Morley

The scheme will improve the quality and consistency of driver information along this stretch of the M5 and give the South West Regional Control Centre greater visibility of this area of the network in order to detect and warn approaching traffic of any incidents or queuing ahead.

The work will be done under narrow lanes but there will be closures of the section of M5 to install these narrow lanes. During this time, a signed diversion will be in place.
