  • National Highways have just said via the radio it’s adding an extra 2 hours to journeys, we’ve actually been stuck between j33-34 for 4 hours so they don’t actually understand their own network. Whoever agreed to the closure and the diversion route needs sacked. Peoples lives are in danger with these delays

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about the delays caused by our closure of the southbound carriageway of M6 motorway at junction 33 on the weekend of 11 September. We understand motorists were caught in traffic for a significant period of time and we’re sincerely sorry for this.

    We’ve taken onboard recent feedback and plan to do things differently. The new schedule of works will be carried out using lane closures for four weeks starting on Sunday October 2, which will ensure the motorway remains open during the daytime providing a safe environment for both workers and road users.

    During the daytime, we will establish lane closures and run two narrow lanes of traffic past the work area to keep customers moving, removing the need for the full weekend closures, which were previously planned. Once the programme has been finalised with our contractors, we will advertise full details via our website, a press release and social media.

    If you would like a more detailed response on this matter, please contact our 24hr Customer Contact Centre
