M6 J10

Black Country Route

Ends: Ongoing

Last updated: 29 October 2021

What’s happening?

Walsall Council is working in partnership with Highways England to improve Junction 10 of the M6 motorway. 

M6 junction 10 is of strategic importance within the Black Country and the wider region, it is on a busy route between Walsall and Wolverhampton. 
The junction is often heavily congested, and this reduces the attractiveness of the local area for business and investment, including within the nearby Black Country Enterprise Zone.

In August and September, we successfully lifted ten large beams into place as part of the new bridges in the junction.

The installation of the new deck on both bridges is now complete following a combination of overnight closures Monday to Friday and a further part-time weekend closure.

Thank you for bearing with the disruption over the last few months as we progress and complete major milestones on this project.

Black Country Route

From the 1st to the 19th of November there will be full overnight closures of the Black Country Route Westbound on Monday to Friday from 9pm to 6am.

A signed diversion via A454, Old Pleck Road, across M6 J9 and onto Black Country New Road will be in place
