A40/M5 JUNCTION 11 GOLDEN VALLEY DECK REFURBISHMENT SCHEME

Highways England operates, maintains and improves England’s motorways and major A roads. I am writing to let you know we will shortly be undertaking a scheme to refurbish the bridge deck that carries the A40 over the M5 at junction 11.

What are the works?
The scheme will involve the extensive refurbishment to the topside of the east, central and west bridges of the Golden Valley Interchange. Work will include resurfacing, joint replacement, waterproofing and timber fencing repairs.
When

Start date: Wednesday 2 January 2019 End date: June 2019

Traffic Management
The work will be carried out in phases, during which time there will be a 50mph speed limit with camera enforcement. For phases 1, 2 and 3, HGV traffic will be directed to use lane 1 via the slip roads due to width restrictions. For each of the phases, the traffic management will change. They will be split into the following:

Phase 1: westbound carriageway closed with contraflow on eastbound. Two lane capacity will be retained by diverting lane 1 traffic down the slip roads and back up the other side. Although contraflow will be in place, two lane capacity will be maintained in both directions.

Phase 2: eastbound carriageway closed with contraflow on westbound. Two lane capacity will be retained by diverting lane 1 traffic down the slip roads and back up the other side. Although contraflow will be in place, two lane capacity will be maintained in both directions.

Phase 3: Mirror lane 2 closures for central reserve working. Two lane capacity will be retained by diverting lane 1 traffic down the slip roads and back up the other side. Although lane 2 will be closed, two lane capacity will be maintained in both directions.

Please note; there will be a break from work during the Cheltenham Festival, which will happen after phase 1.
Please note that whilst we always aim to work to the programme, unforeseen circumstances may mean slight changes to it. We will always aim to notify you of any major changes within the programme but please monitor www.trafficengland.com/ to keep up-to-date.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption the work may cause you. We will of course make every effort to ensure that the impact on the local community is kept to the absolute minimum.
