M6 J10

M6 J10

Ends: 30 July 2021

Last updated: 9 July 2021

What’s happening?

Walsall Council is working in partnership with Highways England to improve Junction 10 of the M6 motorway. 

M6 junction 10 is of strategic importance within the Black Country and the wider region, it is on a busy route between Walsall and Wolverhampton. 
The junction is often heavily congested, and this reduces the attractiveness of the local area for business and investment, including within the nearby Black Country Enterprise Zone.

M6 Junction 10 will be closed from 8pm Friday 6 August - Monday 9 August. See M6 J10 below for more information. 

M6 J10

Highways England will be closing the M6 Junction 10 from Friday 16 July – Monday 19 July as part of M6 J10 improvement works. They will be constructing a new  bridge across Junction 10 of the M6. They will replace the bridge with a new four-lane bridge that will increase capacity and improve journey times through the junction.

To safely lift the bridge beams into place, they will need to close the M6 motorway in both directions between the Junction 10 exit and entry slip roads. During this time, traffic will be diverted up and over the roundabout. During this time M6 Junction 9 will also be impacted and may be busier than usual. 

Travel advice:

  • If you are travelling through M6 Junction in both directions, you will be diverted up and over the roundabout.
  • You should avoid travelling in this area during this weekend as local roads in the surrounding area are likely to experience significant delay
  • If you do need to travel, then plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
  • You may wish to consider using public transport
  • If you’re planning to use this section of the M6 to make longer journeys to head north or south, please consider using alternative routes like the M1 to avoid this area.
  • If you want to travel northbound from Wednesbury junction 9, you will be asked to follow diversions around Walsall or through West Bromwich on the local road network
  • If you’re making a local journey, you may wish to consider using public transport wherever possible.
