Roadworks overnight at M42/NEC/A45

Night-time work to increase the number of lanes linking the M42 to Birmingham Airport and the NEC will start today. When it is finished highways bosses hope it will improve journey times for airport passengers and people visiting attractions like the NEC and Motorcycle Museum.

The work involves widening the A45 Coventry Road eastbound to four lanes at the approach to junction 6 of the M42 and widening the roundabout to provide four lanes.

Lane closures will be in place from 20:00 each night and continue until 06:00 the next morning. There will also be occasional night-time full closures. The work will be completed in November.
