During 2020, we are remodelling and expanding sections of the existing road network in the area, and constructing new routes on HS2 land, which will connect to four new highway bridges. These road improvements will ensure that when the future HS2 Interchange Station is operational, the local road network is fit for purpose.

This is an ongoing programme of works, which commenced in March 2020.

We previously notified you about the installation of 24-hour temporary traffic lights on a short section of the A452 from Monday 12 October for four weeks, and an accompanying single lane closure along this stretch of road, which would alternate between northbound and southbound.

These traffic measure will now be extended to Wednesday 16 December 2020. 

You will still be able to travel along this section of the A452 and we will ensure clear signage is in place for drivers.

The map below outlines the location of the extended temporary traffic lights and accompanying single lane closure in orange.

This schedule is subject to change depending on site and weather conditions. We’ll keep you informed of any adjustments at: www.hs2insolihull.co.uk
