M5 Junction 21 bypass

Work to improve the operation and increase the capacity of M5 Junction 21 is included as part of the Weston Package, but it is possible that both housing and business development in the future will mean that this work is simply not sufficient to handle the likely increase in traffic. 

A bypass to the junction, allowing traffic to move along an alternative route, would significantly reduce congestion in the area.

Work on the precise route of the bypass has to be completed before any planning permission is granted and current timescales suggest that construction would not start until 2016/17.
