In South Wales the M5 connects to the M4 for easy access to South Wales for the Brecon Beacons National Park or the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
UK Bank Holidays and other popular travel times can mean the M5 gets busy and can experience delays.
Primary destinations are Walsall, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare, Bridgwater, Taunton, End Exeter.
The M5 was constructed between 1962 and 1977.

The M49 is a short 5 mile motorway that creates a faster link between the M5 and the M4 for those heading north to South Wales or from South Wales to the south West of England.
The first UK road to be built to motorway standard was the Preston Bypass which later became part of the M6.
