Night-time closure for M5 next month to remove power lines

A SECTION of the  M5 between junction 19 (Portishead) and junction 21 (Weston-super-Mare) will be closed from the night of September 4 to the early hours of the following morning as work continues on the new Hinkley Connection Project.

The work to connect a new electricity line to six million homes means having to remove existing power lines that hang over part of the motorway.

Local road closures will also be enforced meaning Caswell Hill and Caswell Lane will both be shut during the same hours.

Aden Precious, Project Engineer for the National Grid, said: “We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while we undertake this critical work and are sorry for the inconvenience.”
