Hey, can anyone tell me what the best route is from Dawlish (Longlands) to the M5 Heading to Bristol for work commute?

Up Luscombe hill to the A38. Follow the A38 until you join the motorway M5. Saves the holdups along the A379 especially at Exminster.

I don't think so. In the morning most of the traffic are going uphill, in the evening/late afternoon, they will be coming down Luscombe Hill. There are plenty of passing places.

Just to give you an update. Today 26th March, there was a serious accident between jnc 30 and jnc 31 M5. Because of the outdaed road system around Exeter and beyond, traffic was virtually at a stand still on all roads.

I had to go to Exeter and it took me just over 2hrs and I know the roads and short cuts. So keep your radio on and tune into radio Devon where they give you regular updates of traffic problems.
