M6 J10

Footpath Closure

Ends: Ongoing

Last updated: 14 June 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.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the M6 J10 closure that was scheduled 16– 19 July has now been postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Footpath Closure

The footpath that runs across the junction will be closed from 5 November. This is so work can start to safely to widen the A454 Wolverhampton Rd West, the slip roads and the roundabout itself.

The alternative route will be via Bloxwich lane, Churchill Road and Queen Elizabeth Avenue, a route that we’ve recently improved.
