M6 J10

M6 Junction 10 Closure

Ends: Ongoing

Last updated: 8 September 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.

M6 Junction 10 will be closed from 8pm Friday 24 September - Monday 27 September.

M6 Junction 10 Closure

As part of the continuing work to improve M6 junction 10, National Highways need to close the M6 motorway in both directions between the junction 10 exit and entry slip roads from Friday 24 September to Monday 27 September 2021.

Following the installation of the beams, National Highways continue to build the new bridge. To maintain a safe working environment for our workforce and motorists, they will use a mixture of overnight and daytime closures to complete the work.

From Monday 27 September, National Highways will start to install the bridge deck panels. They will close the M6 between the exit and entry slip roads at junction
