The level of congestion on the M5 between Junctions 23 and 25 was considered as part of the London to South West and Wales Multi Modal Study (SWARMMS) commissioned by the Government office for the south-west. The final report in May 2002 stated that the motorway's operation was generally satisfactory at this location.

The Highways Agency records traffic flows and continually monitors the operation of the motorway. Although there has been an increase in traffic flows since the SWARMMS report this has not had a significant impact on the operation of the motorway.
