Progress report

This project is in the preliminary design stage. We will announce a preferred option for the project shortly. We anticipate that upon the successful completion of the statutory process and detailed design construction will commence in April 2019.

What’s next

A public information exhibition is scheduled for early 2017.

Timeline

Event Date
Public consultation December 2015 and February 2017
Planning process April 2017
Start of construction April 2019
Open for traffic Late 2020

Why we need this scheme

The M6 junction 10 currently experiences significant congestion and traffic delays, particularly during morning and evening peak times. Road capacity problems have been identified as one of the main transport issues facing the Black Country within the West Midlands Local Transport Plan. Highways England is working collaboratively with Walsall council to deliver the scheme within the current budget and to meet commitments made in our Delivery Plan and Walsall Council’s major transport scheme priorities for the period 2015-19.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • remove the need for long term maintenance of the existing structure
  • increases capacity at the junction and thereby reduce congestion
  • facilitate improved access to local development site
  • improve accessibility for non-motorised users
  • deliver a solution that will not compromise longer term options for the M6 mainline
