M6 junction 34 southbound – maintenance works and diversion routes

National Highways will be carrying out work to repair the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 34 and 33. The works will include resurfacing and replacing road markings and road studs. This is to ensure that they keep the network safe and operational, as well as improving journeys.

Work is due to start on Monday 14 March for around two weeks. This will take place overnight, between 7pm and 7am.

Below is a breakdown of the work and the traffic management arrangements that will be put in place.

To ensure journeys are maintained, there will be signed diversion routes in place. But please allow additional time and check your journey before travelling. The diversion routes are outlined in the maps below.
National Highways aim to complete our work on time, but unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather may mean slight changes occur at short notice. Every effort will be made to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
However, these works will inevitably generate some noise and inconvenience and National Highways apologise in advance for any disturbance that they may cause.
