Have been informed that the Avonmouth junction is closed all weekend. 

Thought it was overnight?

Yep I can confirm closed all weekend 😡 

we are advising fans attending from m5 to use junction 19 and come in that way . 

Not much good if your heading for the Portway Park and Ride to catch the AG football special bus!

Good point! 

May I suggest junction 17, and through henbury/ Lawrence weston. Big problem with that is no doubt Xmas shoppers will be out in force queuing to come off as well . 

Worth a try

Damn, don't give away the secret.

Portway is never quicker to AG than the A369 even if coming from the North.

So

Is the best advice is to drive past junction 18 as you won't be able to get off?

travel down to J19 round the round about back over the bridge

and get off at junction 18

To be honest I’d come off at J19 go either A369 or if you don’t fancy getting caught up in the queue on the clannage that sometimes occur go up Portbury Lane and then left Failand, down Clarkencombe and onto the A370

Plenty of ways to reach the P&R without using the avonmouth junction. Could possibly come off at the Almondsbury junction and go down past Aztect West then Hayes Way to the Mall and then the route you suggest.

If you need to use the park and ride at partway this is the best advice  , the local route I stated I would suggest is best used by those who know the area 😂😂
