M6, from 8pm May 24 to 6am May 25, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M6 from, junction 8 to junction 10 northbound, Hard shoulder and lane closure for technology works.

M6, from 9pm May 30 to 5am June 1, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M5 northbound, from M5 northbound to M6 southbound, link road, closure of the link road for bridge joint inspection.

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