LM (Laing O’Rourke and J. Murphy & Sons) on behalf of HS2, are remodelling and improving sections of the existing road network in the Interchange area and creating new routes on HS2 land. These road improvements will ensure that when the future HS2 Interchange Station is operational, the local road network is fit for purpose.
Upon completion, a new T-junction will replace Northway Island. A new ‘longabout’ is already in operation outside the Holiday Inn Express NEC, on the way to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC). LM started the creation of the new T-junction in April 2021; to enable them to continue to connect parts of the existing road network to the newly-created routes, a series of weekend road closures will be installed in 2021 near Northway Island.
To carry out this programme safely, temporary weekend road closures will be installed around parts of Northway Island and along short sections of the B4438 northbound and A452 northbound/southbound during the following periods:
- 8pm on Friday 5 November through to 5am on Monday 8 November
- 8pm on Friday 19 November through to 5am on Monday 22 November
