Resurfacing work will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am until Monday, 7 July. No work will be carried out on Saturday July 5 and Sunday, 6 July.
Dave Sanderson, Highways Agency Project Sponsor said:
The resurfacing work is part of the government’s commitment to maintaining England’s roads and will ensure smoother journeys and maintain safety.
The work has been planned to minimise disruption and that is why work will take place overnight when traffic flows are lowest. During the work it will be necessary to close the entry and exit slip roads and lane one of the M5 at different times but drivers will be able to continue their journeys by following a clearly signed diversion route.
The following diversion routes will be in place at different times:
- Closure of J14 southbound exit slip road: Drivers will be diverted to continue on the M5 southbound to J16, then exit and return along the M5 northbound before exiting at junction 14 and continuing their journey
- Closure of J14 southbound entry slip road: Drivers will be diverted to continue on the B4509 to its junction with the A38, turn left on to the A38 and follow the road before rejoining the M5 at junction16 and continuing their journey
- Closure of J14 northbound exit slip road: Drivers will be diverted to continue on the M5 northbound to junction 13, exit and return along the M5 southbound to exit at junction 14 southbound before continuing their journey
- Closure of J14 northbound entry slip road: Drivers will be diverted to follow the A38 northbound to J13 where they can rejoin M5 and continue journey
