On Monday 16 March 2020, we contacted you to confirm that a series of overnight lane closures on Northway and the B4438 would commence on Monday 23 March. Originally, these works were scheduled to take place overnight. However, as traffic movements are currently reduced due to measures in place to combat Coronavirus, changing to daytime working increases our time on site. This will remove the need for some future traffic measures, and help to minimise disruption when daily routines resume.

Please find attached a revised notice of works detailing daytime lane closures on Northway and the B4438 from Monday 23 March for approximately 4 weeks, to be carried out by LM (Laing O’Rourke and Murphy & Sons Joint Venture) on behalf of HS2. We will be working on site from 6am to 6pm, but our traffic measures will be in place 24-hours a day. You will still be able to travel along these roads throughout our works, and during each day of our works, varying lanes will be closed along these roads to avoid overburdening the network.

For full details, please see the attachment.

Please share the attached notice with your employees, tenants and/or customers as required via email, noticeboards, newsletters and shift briefings. When approached with questions about our works, and when notices are distributed by email, please direct people to, www.hs2insolihull.co.uk, for more information about all our works in this area and to sign up for live updates.
