A section of the M6 motorway in Staffordshire will close overnight from tonight, as part of the ongoing 'Smart Motorways' upgrade.
The northbound carriageway will be closed between junctions 10a and 11, from 10pm to 6am. This will happen tonight, Tuesday night and Wednesday night.
The southbound carriageway will be closed between junction 13 and 12, from 10pm to 6am, on Wednesday 15, and Thursday 16 October.
It will be closed while work is carried out to install overhead signs.
Construction of this important scheme, which represents £102m of investment, is progressing well.
We are now ready to install equipment on overhead gantries but to do this as safely and efficiently as possible, we need to close carriageways overnight.
We advise motorists to allow at least an extra 45 minutes for their journeys when travelling along this section of the road.
Once the scheme is completed, it will help reduce congestion and improve journey times.
