Route announced for £282m upgrade to J6 of M42

Highways England has announced its preferred route for a major £282 million improvement scheme to upgrade junction 6 of the M42 near Solihull.

Following a seven week consultation on three options which ended in January, Option 1 was supported by local residents, businesses and drivers.

It would see a new dual carriageway link road to the west of Bickenhill between the A45 Clock Interchange and a new southern junction to the north of Solihull Road.
