We want to promote positive activities and projects that benefit the village or parish in general.

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. Balfour Beatty VINCI is working in partnership with HS2 Ltd to build the new highspeed railway in your area.

We recently completed extensive works on the M42 motorway between junction 9 (Dunton Interchange) and junction 10 (Tamworth Interchange) to prepare for a bridge to be moved into place over the motorway later this year.

Following surveys of the motorway at this location we will be undertaking additional works to the northbound carriageway this weekend. More »

The M42 is part of National Highways' Strategic Road Network (SRN) and safety is the top priority, so we have also introduced a 40mph speed restriction at this location, before the works take place, as well as on the southbound carriageway. We will keep you updated on any further works that may be required.

When we will close the northbound M42 Motorway

We are working closely with National Highways (formerly Highways England) to plan and complete these works safely and efficiently.

We will close the northbound carriageway of the M42 motorway between junction 9 (Dunton Interchange) and junction 10 (Tamworth Interchange) from: 8pm on Friday 14 January to 6am on Monday 17 January 2022.

A clearly signed diversion route will be in place over this period with advance signage in place to help remind motorists of the closure. For more information on these works please visit:

If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email » Less
