Project information

Works taking place

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

HS2 works affecting the M42 between junction 9 (Dunton Interchange) to junction 10 (Tamworth Interchange) - 24 December to 31 December 2021

Hs2 need to undertake preparatory works which will require a one week closure of the M42 Motorway between junctions 9 and 10.

The M42 will be closed in both directions (northbound and southbound) for 7 days.

The closure period will take place from 9pm on Friday 24 December (Christmas Eve) to 9pm on Friday 31 December 2021 (New Year’s Eve).

A clearly signed diversion route will be in place over this period with advance signage to help remind motorists of the closure. People can still get to where they need to go but will need to follow the diversion, plan ahead and leave more time for journeys.”
