High Speed 2 (HS2) works on National Highways network

Project information

Works taking place

HS2 works that are taking place on the National Highways network will be shown below.

HS2 contractor Balfour Beatty VINICI will need to install temporary two-way traffic lights on a short section of the A45 at Eastway between Monday 15 April and Monday 29 April 2024.  

These traffic lights will be in operation during off peak hours from 9.30am to 3.30pm from Monday to Friday.

This is to allow utilities to be moved and diverted, to ensure that they're not impacted by future works.

Although this is a short section of the sliproad near the A45 between the M42 junction 6 and A45 Stonebridge Island, motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
