M6 junction 10 improvement

We're working with Walsall Council to develop plans to provide a long-term improvement to M6 junction 10.

Region:  West Midlands
Start date:  2019/20
Cost:  ÂŁ64.5 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  TBC
Programme:  

Progress report

To carry out the scheme, we need to publish statutory orders to acquire land and alter the layout of the local roads and motorway slip roads. We only need a small area of land on a permanent basis. We've designed the scheme to use existing highway land as far as possible, to minimise impact on neighbouring land.

We published the statutory orders on Tuesday 11 September 2018. For further information on them, please visit the Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council website.

What’s next

Once we’ve obtained the land to carry out the scheme, we will finalise the detailed design and appoint a contractor to carry out the work, which we hope to start in Summer 2019.

Why we need this scheme

The M6 junction 10 currently experiences significant congestion and traffic delays, particularly during morning and evening peak times. Road capacity problems have been identified as one of the main transport issues facing the Black Country within the West Midlands Local Transport Plan.

We're working collaboratively with Walsall council to deliver the scheme within the current budget and to meet commitments made in our Delivery Plan and Walsall Council’s major transport scheme priorities for the period 2015-19.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion, rat-running and queues to create a freer-flowing road network
  • support economic growth by improving access to motorways and Walsall Enterprise Zone sites, attracting new business and development to the area
  • provide a safe, well maintained road network
  • avoid future major maintenance by replacing the bridges now
  • improve conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders at the junction
