Current journey times…
This is the situation on the M5 southbound as of 10.15am
There are long, long delays heading southbound on the M5. The back of the queue is currently in Bristol, on the approach to the Avonmouth junction 18, and the Avonmouth bridge.
From there, it’s stop-start traffic – and mostly stop – across the bridge, past junction 19 for Portishead, and up the hill towards Clevedon.
Things ease up a bit coming down the other side of the hill towards junction 20, but there’s a second queue around that junction, and an even bigger traffic jam on the approach to junction 21 and 22 for Weston and then Burnham.
The estimated travel time for those three junctions, 19-22, is currently one hour and 10 minutes.
Here’s the scene looking across the M5 at the southbound approach to Weston…
