    Footpath reopening and upcoming road and lane closures until 19 January

    Our scheme has opened the new combined footpath and cycleway, to the south verge of the north bridge that has controlled crossing points, which is a significant milestone. This means safer journeys for pedestrians, cyclists and other non-motorised users across the roundabout. A footpath was previously provided on the north verge of the north bridge, but there was no controlled crossing point at either end.

    We’ll be putting in place a number of road and lane closures so we can continue our work on the M6 J10 roundabout and the surrounding roads. Please see the table below for more information.

    We’re sorry for the disruption this work may cause to your journey and encourage drivers to plan ahead and allow extra time when travelling. We’ll aim to reopen the roads sooner if we complete our work earlier than expected.

    Please note that these closures are subject to change at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances or poor weather conditions. Please check our Twitter feed (@HighwaysWMIDS) for the latest information before you travel.

Feedback Map

The M6 junction 10 currently experiences significant congestion and traffic delays, particularly during morning and evening peak times. Road capacity problems have been identified as one of the main transport issues facing the Black Country within the West Midlands Local Transport Plan. 

The congestion includes queuing on the roundabout and the motorway slip roads, the Black Country Route and other roads leading to the junction. The improvements will ease congestion and reduce journey times for the thousands of drivers who use it every day 

We're working collaboratively with Walsall council to deliver the scheme within the current budget and to meet commitments made in our Delivery Plan and Walsall Council’s major transport scheme priorities for the period 2015-19. 

We have a target completion period and are working as quickly as possible to complete the improvement work.

As part of the improvement work we’ll:  

  • replace the two existing bridges with two new, four-lane bridges to increase capacity  
  • widen the existing junction slip roads  
  • improve the slip roads and approaches on the local road network 
  • widen the westbound A454 Black Country Route 

Benefits: 

Provide a freer flowing network by: 

  • reducing congestion on the A454 (Black Country Route and Wolverhampton Road) and other roads linking to the junction 
  • reducing ‘rat-running’ traffic on nearby routes 
  • reducing queuing on the motorway slip roads 

Support economic growth by:

  • improving access to the strategic road network 
  • attracting new business and development to the area 
  • improving links to nearby Enterprise Zone sites and other development sites 

Provide a safe and maintainable network by:

  • replacing the bridges, avoiding major disruptive maintenance work in the future 
  • improving conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and horse-riders for crossing the junction safely
