As part of a wider works project to improve access into the NEC from the M42, it will be necessary to close a section of the existing Eastway link from the M42 J6 southbound link for up to six weeks from Monday 27 November 2023.

Traffic will still be able to exit the M42 southbound at J6, and access the NEC via the motorway island. Please allow extra time for your journey.
