M6 J2-4 Smart motorway scheme night roadworks affecting access to M6toll road

From 12th March, there will be a series of night time closures (21:00-06:00) of the M6 from junctions 2-4 as part of the conversion of the M6 into an “all-lane running” smart motorway. These closures will be in place on and off over the next 2 years. (For latest timetable of closures click here)

Your journeys may be affected by this as closures will impact access to / from the M6 at the southern end of the M6toll. Access to the M42 will not be impacted. During the M6 closures, diversionary routes will be put in place potentially adding extra time to your journey.  

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these Highways England works. If you would like further information on these scheduled roadworks please call Highways England Information Line (HAIL) on 0300 123 5000 or email them on
