M32 Closures in June 2016

There will be some closures on the M32 between junctions 1 and 3 from 8pm on Friday 10 June until 6am on Monday 13 June.

If you are planning on visiting our theatre this weekend please be aware these closures are expected to cause delays.

The closures will allow a new bridge to be put in place over the motorway for the MetroBus bus-only junction and are required to carry out this work safely.

Alternative routes in and out of Bristol will be clearly signposted during the closures.

Route diversions are being managed by Highways England who are working with Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset councils.

Traffic will be advised of the closures prior to junctions 18 and 16 of the M5. On the M4 traffic will be advised to come off at the junction 18 to access south and east Bristol.
