Where the traffic will go


From 6 June the £10M project will see the M6 reduced to two lanes in both directions between the M5 interchange at junction 8 and the Ray Hall viaduct. There will be no access to the M6 southbound at junction 9.

From early July traffic will be reduced to two lanes in either direction between junctions 5 and 6.

Slip roads from the M6 north and southbound to the Aston Expressway will close for nine weeks.

At the same time Birmingham City Council is to resurface the Aston Expressway at the Tame Valley viaduct. Work starts in early July and will see both directions of the A38(M) narrowed to two lanes.

Access from the A38(M) to the M6 southbound will be closed for nine weeks, as will access from Salford Circus to the M6 southbound. There will still be access to the M6 northbound via the A38M slip road.

Work on both sections of the M6 will last until November.
