Roads Minister Robert Goodwill will visit the Midlands today to view progress on developing the M6 J5-8 smart motorway scheme.
The project, which aims to reduce congestion between junctions 5 and 8 on the M6, has created 600 jobs.
Construction on the £115 million smart motorway M6 scheme started in April 2012 and it is due for completion in spring 2014.
