Work item details

In early May we updated you on the works to be carried out on the M6/M42 link roads. Unfortunately, some aspects of these works were not able to start on the dates outlined and are now planned to start Monday 14th June. The works that will be completed include:
• Widening of the east bound hard shoulder
• Implementation of long-term traffic management arrangements, consisting of narrow running lanes
• Creation of access/egress point off the east bound link road
In order to undertake our works safely, throughout June and July we will work with Highways England to:
• Implement temporary overnight road closures on east bound link road.
• Implement long-term narrow lanes on east bound link road, reducing the speed limit to 50mph. These narrow lanes will be in place for the duration of BBV’s construction programme.
