The surface of a 100m 2area of the southbound M6 viaduct between Junctions 5 and 6 near Birmingham was damaged on Saturday morning when a lorry burst into flames on the busy motorway. Eight vertical parapet units were also damaged on the viaduct, which forms part of Spaghetti Junction. The road was re-opened on Sunday but structural engineers acting for the Highways Agency were carrying out detailed checks on the underside of the slab as NCE went to press.
