Progress report

We have received significant feedback following the statutory consultation at the beginning of the year and are now working towards making our development consent order (DCO) application by the end of the year.

We remain committed to considering the views of the community and other stakeholders as we continue to develop our scheme proposals. As a result of your feedback, together with our ongoing technical and environmental work, we are carrying out further environmental assessments and some further localised consultation, with property owners affected by the scheme, to ensure the final project meets the needs of customers, local residents and other stakeholders ahead of the DCO application submission date.

Please visit our consultation page to view the scheme changes and design development which has taken place, and to provide your comments and views on these.

What's next?

Subject to the scheme being granted consent, we plan to start construction in 2020. You can see an updated proposed timeline below.

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 is an important junction on the motorway network 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 is located north of Solihull and provides the main access on the motorway for:

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

In addition to these major assets, 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 ‚Äď even without the inclusion of HS2 ‚Äď 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
