    Next phase of work

    From Friday 1 July at 8pm we’re closing the M2 westbound between junctions 7 and 5 until Monday 4 July at 6am.

    Update!: The same closure was scheduled to take place again Friday 15 July until 6am on Monday 18 July - but this has now been cancelled. There'll be a new date for this work later this year.

    We’ll be replacing expansion joints, waterproofing and resurfacing the bridges that carry Stuppington Road, Wells Lane and Hunt Kennels over the M2. This work is critical to maintaining and improving safety.

    All traffic will be diverted via the A2, A20, M20 and A249 to M2 junction 5 where the diversion ends.
