HEAVY traffic is causing long delays for drivers in Gloucester this evening.
It is thought the problems are the knock-on effect of roadworks on the M5 between junctions 12 and 11a.
There is also one lane closed on the A40 westbound at Highnam where more roadworks are taking place.
Long queues have been reported on the A40 at Maisemore between the A417 Over Causeway junction and the B4215 junction.
Delays have also been reported on Eastern Avenue, Barnwood Road and Stroud Road.
40 mins just to get out of Gloucester! It's quicker getting home during Gold Cup week #Traffic

For travel into and out of Gloucester tonight it took 90 minutes to do 10 miles, is this a record? No I wasn't walking I was in a van!
