M5 J1 to J2 Oldbury Viaduct Maintenance Scheme

The M6toll provides an alternative route for M5 traffic avoiding Highways England Major Renewal Scheme

'Midland Expressway Limited and Highways England working together to limit inconvenience to road users'

Major concrete repair and waterproofing on the M5 Oldbury Viaduct, between junctions 1 and 2

The Scheme: Highways England is carrying out essential concrete repair and waterproofing work on the M5 J1-2 Oldbury Viaduct.  To carry out this work safely and to keep the route open, Highways England has installed a contraflow system between M5 junctions 1 and 2.  To keep congestion to a minimum on the M5 and surrounding roads whilst this work takes place, Highways England is urging customers who are travelling across the country to consider alternative routes such as the M42, M6 or the M6toll.

Why the scheme is needed: The M5 is one of the busiest routes in the country, carrying a mix of traffic through the Midlands and onwards to routes in the north and south. This section of the M5 motorway is particularly busy, and is a commuter hub with traffic joining with the M6 and then other roads into and out of the Birmingham hub, and other cities in the region.

By maintaining this section Highways England are delivering a huge investment in Oldbury that will support economic growth locally and in the wider West Midlands. This supports their commitment to ensuring that the region’s roads are fit for now and for the future.

For further information on the scheme, please visit Highways England website

This scheme is expected to be complete by Autumn 2018 - to avoid these works why not use the M6toll

The M6toll runs for 27 miles, from Junction 3a on the M6 all the way round the North East of the West Midlands, rejoining the M6 at Junction 11a.
