With our apologies for the extremely short notice, it has just come to our attention that Highways England plan to begin some repair work underneath M6 J6, Spaghetti Junction (Gravelly Hill Interchange) tomorrow, 11 May 2017.
The work will require daytime traffic management on the A38(M) Out of City to the M6 southbound and on the M6 junction 6 southbound off slip until spring 2018. The number of running lanes will not be changed, but traffic will be moved over to run on the hard shoulder lane, with a 30mph speed restriction.
A number of overnight closures will also be required, the first of which will be on 11, 12 and 13 May on the A38(M) out of city to the M6 north and south. The M6 southbound junction 6 off slip will be closed overnight every Saturday from 13 May through to 3 June 2017.
This work is in addition to the carriageway repairs which are expected to be carried out during the summer holidays which were included in our recent briefing meetings.
Please find attached a letter from HE with a little more information.
We will continue to keep you informed as we learn more about future overnight closures.
