Birmingham's motorists will have four road closures to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with drivers facing holdups of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:

M6, from 9pm September 18 2019 to 6am December 31 2022, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M6, junction 6 BC link road, 24 hour hatched area for bridge repairs.

A5, from 9pm December 8 2021 to 5.30am September 30 2023, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A5 westbound, hints bypass between the A453 and A38 junctions, (tamworth to lichfield), temporary speed, lane closures with switching and narrow lanes running for general construction works.

And a further two closures will begin over the next seven days:

M6, from 9pm December 2 to 6am December 3, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M6 northbound, jct five exit slip road, lane closures and slip road carriageway closure for carriageway resurfacing.

M6, from 9pm December 5 to 6am December 8, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M6 southbound, jct six to jct five, lane closures with closures of out of city C-A entry link road to M6 southbound, for comms and street lighting works.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
