M5 J12 Improvements

Scheme outline

The aim of this scheme is to improve traffic flow by increasing the capacity of the junction. This will be achieved by adding lanes to the sliproads, roundabouts, and overbridge, and by building new, dedicated filter lanes north- and southbound between the M5 and the B4008 (A38) to Gloucester. The junction will also be signalised.
