Westbound B4509 Traffic Light on to North bound M5

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 14:27, Thu 7 September 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4969400.

There looks to be a problem with the right turn lane traffic light heading on to the northbound M5 slip road. (Coming down Tortworth hill)

The lights are either being missed out of the phase completely or changing back to red within a few seconds. This has been happening for several days now.

20 minute delays from part way up Torthworth hill to junction.

Junction was basically gridlocked at 17:50 on 06/09

  • Lights controlling northbound filter at junction 14 M5 not sequencing correctly and at times resulting in que for this filter to obstruct onward traffic to the B4509 /A38 junction. This is causing traffic at various times queuing as far back as Tortworth school. This issue has been present from at least Wednesday 6th September. Also the Parish Council that there are sensors positioned at various points at this junction. If this is monitor traffic volumes are you able to share this information with the Parish Council are point the Parish Council to an area where this information can be found.
