Update from Highways England:-

We’re making safety and capacity improvements to the M42 at junction 6 by building:
„ a new 2.4km dual carriageway link road between the A45 Clock Interchange and a new
junction on the M42 south of junction 6
„ a new junction 5a on the M42 motorway
„ two new roundabouts on either side of the M42 motorway
„ a new footbridge over the A45
Once complete, the upgrade will reduce congestion at junction 6 and allow better movement of
traffic on and off the A45. Our work will improve journey reliability, make it easier to get to key
businesses including Birmingham Airport and the NEC, and improve the travelling experience for
cyclists and walkers.
Later this month we’re holding public information events so the project team can share updates
about how the scheme is progressing and answer your questions.  For more information: Click Here
