Midlands to Weston super mare, M5 good Friday, madness ?


Well-known Member
So tomorrow I'll be travelling from the Midlands down to Weston super mare on the M5 anyone know that stretch of the motorway well enough to comment on whether it'll be a mare traffic wise. Best looking to travel late morning.

Bank Holiday Weekend, M5 and Travel Late Morning do not usually make for a great time.

I don't know that route well at all but I will be travelling to Hull from Birmingham in the morning with the family and we will be going at about 8am.

I think the bulk of the issues tend to be south of WSM. It'll be busy around Bristol, and especially the Cribbs Causeway exit (17/18?). Travel the earlier the better I would suggest.

There's a number of resources for live traffic before you set off like this one. Also several phone apps.
