M2 J5 Improvements

Scheme outline

Improvements to the sliproads at M2 junction 5 (Stockbury) and the roundabout where they connect to the A249. At present the junction suffers regular congestion, particularly on the A249 southbound and the exit from the M2 westbound, and has an extremely poor safety record. Planned developments in the area will put further pressure on the junction.

Highways England plan to consult on the scheme in autumn 2017 and issue a preferred design towards the end of the year. Until then the form of the proposals are not known, and no costing has been issued.

According to the consultation that opened this week, the proposed improvement is to add a new sliproad in the NW quadrant, and convert the existing roundabout to a signalized hamburger formation with direct left turns (also necessitating the rerouting of local roads).
