We will be undertaking permanent repairs to the M50 overbridges. To carry out this work there will be a number of closures of both the M50 and the bridges above. The work will involve overnight closures of the M50 – please check the Roadworks Finder for more details. All our closures are detailed on our weekly traffic management bulletin. If you wish to receive this, please email: noreplyM50Bridges@highwaysengland.co.uk.
We plan to complete the permanent repairs to the bridges by the end of 2019 and we’re working closely with local authorities to keep any disruption to a minimum. If you are looking to travel to or from Wales, you may wish to consider using the now toll-free Severn road bridges.
Queens Arms bridge
We will need to close the bridge to all traffic on the evening of 29 April 2019. It will remain closed until the work is complete. We will put a signed diversion route in place while the bridge is closed.
Bury Court bridge and Pendock bridge
We will continue to keep the traffic lights and a single lane open across these bridges.
