Average speeds are from the Highways Agency network journey time and traffic flow data May 2014.

The M5 is the only single-digit motorway in the UK that does not originate or terminate in London. Work commenced on the M5 motorway in 1962 (opening in 1977) in order to ease congestion on A roads and minor routes, which over the decades has seen a huge increase in traffic flow for those heading from the Midlands / North of England down to the South West of the country. The motorway runs a huge 163 miles in length, beginning at Junction 8 on the M6 bypassing Droitwich Spa, Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Taunton and ending at Exeter.

Congestion and heavy traffic is commonplace during peak times, especially the start/end of school summer holidays, Friday rush hour and school/bank holidays, especially on the southern half of the motorway.

Out of these times, expect plenty of commercial traffic in the form of lorries and vans - the M5 is a primary route for commercial vehicles to/from Birmingham-Bristol and Midlands-South Wales ports.

The Bristol area continues to be problematic for motorists, especially around Avonmouth Bridge. Despite widening projects designed to ease the flow of traffic - especially on the steep hilly areas, the M5 motorway remains the only viable route for most journeys heading to the south west of England.


Don't drink and drive

Please don't drink and drive - it's not worth the risk. Alcohol seriously affects your ability to drive safely. You can end up in court, jailed, and fined up to £5,000 plus a 12-month ban from driving and a criminal record.
