SGL7 TRAFFIC NIGHTMARE - M50 closed this weekend

Recommended Posts

I am at the camp site, wifi nearly ready, but on the way down the M50 I noticed road closure signs. Investigating this more, I have discovered that they are closing pretty much the whole of the M50 (from the M5 to M50 junction 2)

** The M50 will be closed from 10pm Friday night, and wont re-open until 6am Monday morning **

I have never known another road to be so worked on as the M50. Every year there seems to be major works on it :)

Will have to find another way home from my parents on sunday then, thanks for the heads up Steve.

Stupid question : where does the M50 run?

I can't navigate for toffee, satnav or bust :)

The M50 runs from the M5 to almost Ross-on-wye. I am sure Google maps will help you :)

Ah I see :) Many thanks!

My satnav is currently planning to bring me off the M5 the junction before the M50 (coming in from above) so hopefully won't impact the return journey ;)

I assume it'll be OK tomorrow morning. As I need to get to Ashchurch on the way home I'll try going up to Ledbury and down the A438, unless someone has a better idea!
