LM on behalf of HS2 – Notice of overnight single lane closures on the M42, and overnight road closures on the A452 and A446

Please find attached a notice of works detailing overnight single lane closures on the M42 and overnight road closures on the A452 and A446 in March 2021, being carried out by LM (Laing O’Rourke and J. Murphy & Sons) on behalf of HS2.

When the future HS2 Interchange Station is operational, four new highways bridges will connect the current road network to new routes we are creating. The first of these new highways bridges was safely installed in August over the M42, and the second was installed in October over the A446. This year, we will carry out various activities to fully reinstate these roads such as street lighting connections.

To carry out this work safely, we will install:

  • Temporary overnight single lane closures along the M42 southbound from 10pm to 5am, between Monday 15 March and Saturday 27 March (the hard shoulder along the closure will also be closed)
  • Temporary overnight road closures along the A452 and A446 from 8pm to 6am, on Monday 15, Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 March

Signed diversion routes will be in place for drivers during the overnight road closures. Our contractors may be on site up to an hour before and after these times to set up and close down the site.

Please see the notification attached for full details.
