National Highways is undertaking a programme of work relating to cable inspection which will run until January 2023. See more details below.

M48 Bridge Closure this weekend
As part of this work, there is a need for the M48 Bridge to be closed in both directions from today, Friday 30th September at 19:00 until Monday 3rd October at 06:00.

Cable Inspection Works Programme
To carry out these cable inspections and to ensure the safety of both the travelling public and our workforce, long-term lane closures will be put in place. 
The inspection works will involve the closure of one lane westbound from the 22 June 2022 until around January 2023, and one eastbound starting from July 2022 until around November 2022, with the overall programme of works lasting for around eight months.

During the period of lane closures, vehicles over 2.9 metres wide will be prohibited from using the M48 Severn Bridge, and the bridge will also be closed totally over three weekends to enable the lifting of the inspection gantries to a high level on the suspension cable. We will communicate these well in advance.
