Maintenance works will affect the main carriageway which will be reduced to one lane, with a temporary 50mph speed limit in place. The works will also affect the southbound junction 18 exit slip into Avonmouth. Some full lane closures will also be required at times to install and remove traffic management measures and to complete carriageway resurfacing.
Please allow extra time for journeys during these works, particularly during the morning and evening peak periods. More
