M5 | South West | Holiday Traffic | Severe Delays of 90 minutes
1970-01-01 00:00:00

There are severe delays of over 90 minutes above usual journey times currently being experienced for traffic using the M5 northbound carriageway in the South West. Congestion spans approximately 16 miles of the northbound carriageway and is concentrated mostly between Taunton and Burnham-on-Sea.

Delays are due to the extra holiday traffic using these routes but is also due to a number of breakdowns and subsequent lane closures. Highways England has resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible.

If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from our on-road variable message signs and media. For urgent real time assistance, our 24/7 contact centre team is able to provide up to the minute information on 0300 123 5000.
