HS2 Works: Temporary off-peak traffic measures along the M42 and A446 from March to May 2022


LM (Laing O’Rourke and J. Murphy & Sons), working on behalf of HS2, are carrying out roadside landscaping and construction activities along carriageways in the area. To ensure safe access to our work sites to carry out these activities, LM will install traffic measures when necessary. From March to May 2022 they will install the following:

A temporary overnight hard shoulder closure along a short section of the M42 northbound, leading into a lane closure on the M42 J7 and M6 link road, from 10pm on Wednesday 2 March to 6am on Thursday 3 March. Clear signage will be placed along the route to assist road users.

A temporary off-peak single lane closure along a short section of the A446 southbound from Tuesday 1 March to Tuesday 31 May, between 9.30am and 3.30pmMonday to Friday. This lane closure will not be in place every day during this period, but instead will be installed when required by the programme to avoid overburdening the road network.

2 March – 3 March
1 March – 31 May
