Lane closure sign causing unnecessary traffic

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 11:40, Mon 10 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4419603.

M5 Southbound between J19 portishead and J20 clevedon signs suggesting surface water and closing the fast lane causing lots of traffic. No obvious issue with that lane so suggest the signs are out of date.
