£7.8m M6 resurfacing scheme starts

The Highways Agency has today started work on a £7.8 million scheme to resurface one of the UK’s busiest stretches of motorway along the M6.

Under the 11 week scheme, 3.21 km of the M6 southbound, between junctions 6 at Gravely Hill and junction 5 at Castle Bromwich, will be surfaced and bridge joints will be replaced.

Work will be carried out 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the road will be kept open with a contra-flow system in place.

The scheme is the third and final phase of a £29 million programme to upgrade the M6 between junctions 5 and 6.

"This work is essential to ensure the safety of motorists using this stretch of the M6 and avoid the need for unplanned and untimely emergency repairs in months to come," said Highways Agency project sponsor Sarah Churchill.
