M42 junction 3a to junction 7a: safety barrier renewal

Theresa Morley

Work to renew the safety barrier to improve safety for road users.

Works will be carried out overnight. During the day the carriageway will be kept open as usual. There will be sections of the M42 with overnight lane 2 and 3 closures on both sides of the road. The work will also also require some full closures; these will be advertised through advanced warning signs.

Clearly signed diversion routes will be in place during any necessary closures. We’d advise all motorists to stick to the signed diversion routes as they have been chosen with both suitability and safety in mind.

Due work on other nearby schemes, this scheme will now finish in August 2019. We’re working hard to finish this as soon as possible, thank you for your patience while we carry out this work.
