ESSENTIAL resurfacing works are set to close a section of the M50 between Tewkesbury and ledbury.

National Highways said overnight work will be carried out between junctions one and two on the M50 heading westbound next week.

Daytime lane closures will also be in place including the hard shoulder with a speed restriction of 50mph.

The work will begin on Monday, March 20 and is set to end on Friday, March 24, between the hours of 9pm and 6am.


As part of the resurfacing work, National Highways will also be renewing the road markings and studs to provide a smoother, safer carriageway for road users.

During the closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place as below, and access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout.

National Highways said: "We’ll make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to a minimum.

"We always aim to work to the programme, however unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions may mean changes."
