To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what progress has been made on proposals to modify junction 12 of the M5; and what plans she has for consultation prior to the introduction of any modifications. (201572)

Committed developments in Gloucester will increase pressure on the M5 junction 12. Following the first release of funds from developers, the Highways Agency is about to commission the preparation of design works in respect of an improvement at the junction.

The Highways Agency will be developing a communications strategy, to include stakeholder involvement. This will provide an opportunity for interested parties to see and discuss the improvement scheme proposals.
