Speed restrictions are to be put in place on a busy part of the M6 for four months as work is carried out to provide a smoother and safer surface on the motorway.
A £ 3.9m resurfacing scheme to provide a safer surface on a two-mile stretch of the M6 between junction 10A (M54) and junction 11A (M6 Toll) will start this Saturday.
A 50mph speed limit will be enforced for the safety of drivers and the workforce and traffic will run on three lanes northbound and two lanes southbound with an occasional contraflow lane.
Drivers are being warned to allow extra time or vary their journeys if possible during the works, which are due to be completed in January 2006.
To complete the scheme quickly and keep disruption to a minimum, work will be carried out 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Access to Hilton Park services will be maintained, apart from occasional overnight closures, which will be advertised in advance. A free recovery service will be available within the limit of the works.
