Progress report

Our proposals for the M42 junction 6 Improvement Scheme have now been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate for formal examination. This is a significant milestone for the scheme, as it signifies a big step towards the delivery of much-needed improvements on this stretch of road. You can view our planning application on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.

What's next?

Over the next few months the Planning Inspectorate will make arrangements to carry out an examination of the application. This will be led by an examining authority made up of one or more examining inspectors. The Planning Inspectorate will then have 6 months to carry out the examination. You can find more information about this process on the Planning Inspectorate’s National Infrastructure Planning webpage.

Why we need this scheme

The government identified the need for this scheme in its 2014 Road Investment Strategy. M42 Junction 6 lies on the eastern side of Birmingham. It's an important junction and lies at the heart of an area of dynamic growth, surrounded by a unique mix of major assets that serve both the local and wider economy.

It's located north of Solihull and provides the main access on the motorway for:

  • Birmingham Airport
  • the HS2 Interchange station
  • the National Exhibition Centre
  • National Motorcycle Museum / National Conference Centre
  • Birmingham International railway station
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Birmingham Business Park

The area adjacent to junction 6 of the M42 (immediately to the north east) is earmarked by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council for a proposed commercial and residential development.

The scheme is required to accommodate planned developments in the area. The junction has almost reached capacity, causing severe congestion and delays across the network. Currently, congestion and journey reliability issues are a significant constraint to future investment and economic growth. Junction 6 does not have sufficient capacity to accommodate predicted traffic growth beyond 2019 – even without the inclusion of HS2 – if we do not act.

Aims

The main benefits of the scheme will be:

  • a safe and reliable operation of the M42 and A45
  • increased capacity of the junction which will support economic growth in the area
  • improve access to key locations such as Birmingham Airport and HS2 Birmingham Interchange
  • support economic growth in the surrounding area

    Hi everyone,

    Apologies for the delay due to a slight technical glitch, the webchat is now live.

  • Caroline Jevons

    We have only recently been made aware of this scheme. What will be the process for informing landowners of proposals that may affect them?

    • GLHighways_England

      Hi Caroline,

      Identified landowners were invited to the consultation events. As the preliminary design develops, we will have a better understanding of the land-take requirements. We will work closely with affected landowners in order to agree what accommodation works and compensation will be payable so as to minimise disruption from the scheme. We expect this engagement will commence in the coming months.

      If you are a landowner and are concerned that you may be affected, please get in touch via m42junction6@highwaysengland.co.uk or call 0300 123 5000.

      Graham
