A46 Binley Junction

Ends: ongoing

Last updated: 4 August 2021

What’s happening?

The A46 is an important road link between the East and West Midlands, connecting Coventry and Warwickshire to the motorway network.

The scheme, managed by Highways England and Coventry City Council, includes building a flyover to separate local and commuter traffic at the locally-known TGI island near Binley. 

Work to develop plans for Walsgrave junction, the second phase of the A46 Coventry Junctions scheme, is continuing.

Why is this happening?

Approximately £61 million is being invested in the first phase of the A46 Coventry Junctions upgrade project. Aiming to transform stop-start journeys for commuters whilst also giving an economic boost to the region.

When the new-look junction opens in 2022, motorists will enjoy improved journey times and increased road safety, making connectivity across the Midlands better.

Could you change the time of your journey?. Avoid travelling during peak times wherever possible. Plan ahead, check timetables or apps and leave more time for your journey as services will be busier.
Plan ahead and leave more time for your journey. If you travel, you’ll need more time for your journey to take account of changes and diversions.
