Highways England (HE) is undertaking a scheme to install new driver information signs between junction 17 and 18 (northbound and southbound) on the M5.

The scheme will improve the quality and consistency of driver information along this stretch of the M5. It will give the South West Regional Control Centre greater visibility of this area of the network in order to detect and warn approaching traffic of any incidents or queuing ahead.

About Flexology
Kristal and her business partner have a background in Senior Management roles in Business. When looking for a new challenge they realised there’s a huge lack of options for those that want flexibility, with less than 1 in 10 roles advertised in this way. The research they completed showed a huge demand for flexible working from candidates, therefore they launched Flexology. They help clients close their skill and talent gaps, finding talented professionals, who are looked for full and part time roles, offered with flexibility.
