    main roads in Bristol and the A38 to the airport are pretty clear as they are major commuter routes. Just a bit slushy in parts

    As Choc said although there is some snow forecast for tomorrow too but shouldnt be that bad.

    m4 and a48m were both closed this afternoon and are still described as treacherous. hopefully by tomorrow it might be a little better.

    Thank you everyone. Its so unfortunate that UK grinds to a stand still with even a little bit of snow. Cardiff has been a nightmare to drive in the last few days. I visited Slovakia last year, experienced -20 there but all the roads and airports were open. Everyone came for the meeting and it was business as usual.

    I just hope that Bristol airport is open tomorrow, otherwise our Christmas plans would need dramatic altering

    Hazardous driving conditions due to snow., slow trafic due to snow on m5 both ways between j15 m4 and j31 a30.

    Good luck and try this site. M4 Traffic Cameras in Wales

    Gives you an updated picture from the traffic cameras on the M4 in Wales and on the bridge!
    It's not as bad as people make out!

    The m5 / a38 should be fine tomorrow. The m5 this morning was a nightmare due to the snow but should be ok.

    Thank you for the traffic cam link. I see the motorways are clear. Hopefully they should be cleared tomorrow

    motorway is kinda clear, the airport should be fine too, its just the side roads a bit ice skaty! (which is aweessomme! - tokyo drift turns and everything)

    Just take care on the small roads heading to Bristol airport as there are some really nasty hills & turns up that way

    BTW are you a biker? (motorcycles)

    Yes I am, for 9 years now. How about you and what do you ride?

    Daughter did the M4 past Cardiff to the bridge the other day when the snow was heavy, on her way home from Uni, and said although it was a little hair-raising at times, the surface itself was pretty driveable - not sure if that helps at all lol !

    Btw - bikers here too

    What do you guys ride. I started of with a cg125, followed by a GSF600 Bandit (2007 - track modified), then GSXR750 - got stolen this August - yet to be found. Now waiting for next year cant decide whether to go for a Triumph RocketIII or another GSXR750. Loved the 750

    Fav was the Kawasaki ZX6R I used to ride to work at the Solicitors, but gettin bit older now lol so now it's a Triumph Legend 900 First bike was a little Honda H100, had a Bros 650 (I think !) few Kwaka's, GPX 250 ..... among others !!
