Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Weekend Closures M6 Junction 6 and the A38(M) Aston Expressway

Essential maintenance to the M6 J6 and A38(M) with full weekend closures from 22 July 2016. 

Highways England hope to have completed the work by Christmas 2016.

Delaying the repair programme would mean that road surfaces would continue to deteriorate leading to unscheduled disruption and severe impact on traffic in and around Birmingham.

The programme has been designed to minimise disruption to the travelling public: full road closures will take place overnight and during weekends in the summer holidays, when there is significantly less traffic. Diversions will be in place, but we strongly recommend drivers consider switching to public transport where possible.

The first changes will come into operation from Monday 27 June 2016, with overnight closures of the A38(M) Aston Expressway out of city carriageway. From Friday 1 July 2016, a number of junction, carriageway and speed restrictions will come into effect.

Full details of the works are available on the Highways England website.
