‘Spaghetti Junction’ repairs to start

Spaghetti Junction

Vital repair work to protect one of Britain’s most iconic road structures is due to restart this month, according to Highways England.

Highways England said that the work on junction six of the M6 and the A38(M) Aston Expressway near Birmingham, better known as ‘Spaghetti Junction’, would include repairs to the concrete structure and renewal of the waterproofing on the iconic road structure. It said that the ageing structure was in need of repair and that the work was unavoidable.

“The road was built a considerable number of years ago and has reached the end of its life. We need to work now to ensure this part of Spaghetti Junction is protected for years to come,” said Highways England project manager Jess Kenny.
