HS2 Works: Overnight traffic management – Closure of M42-M6 Loop at Junction 7a, 2-3 May 2022.

Balfour Beatty VINCI (BBV) is working in partnership with HS2 Ltd will be carrying out Ground Pulse Radar surveys on the ‘loop’ section of Junction 7a of the M42 that links the northbound carriageway to the southbound  carriageway of the M6. GPR uses radar pulses to create a profile of what  the ground looks like beneath the surface.

To carry out these works safely, we will close the slip road that connects the northbound carriage way of the M42 to the southbound carriageway of the M6 between 9pm and 5am on Monday 2 May and Tuesday 3 May. 

Northbound traffic wishing to exit the M42 on to the M6 to travel south, will be diverted to J9 of the M42. Please note: Works are subject to weather conditions.

A fully signed diversion will be in place during these works.
