M54 Junctions 2-3 and 4-5 Concrete Renewal Work

M54 Junctions 2-3 and 4-5 Concrete Renewal Work
I’m writing to make you aware of a scheme we are preparing to carry out on the M54
between junctions 2 to 3 westbound, and 4 to 5 eastbound. The work will involve
repairs of the concrete road surface and replacement of road markings and studs.
Due to the concrete needing time to set to the required strength, we will need to
carry this work out under several phased weekend closures of the M54 motorway.
M54 junctions 2 to 3 westbound:
• Friday 21 to Monday 24 January 2022
• Friday 28 to Monday 31 January 2022
• Friday 4 to Monday 7 February 2022
• Friday 11 to Monday 14 February 2022
• Friday 18 to Monday 21 February 2022
These works will be carried out under full weekend closures of the M54 westbound
from 8pm on Friday to 6am on Monday. Junctions 2 to 3 westbound traffic will be
diverted via the A449, A5 and A41. This route is 15.4 miles and will add
approximately 7 minutes to journey times. Please see reverse for diversion map.
M54 junctions 4 to 5 eastbound:
• Friday 25 to Monday 28 February 2022 – Overnight closures of the M54
eastbound between junctions 5 and 4, from 8pm to 6am each day. Traffic will
be diverted via Rampart Way, A442 and A464. Please see reverse for
diversion map.
• Saturday 26 to Sunday 27 February – Weekend daytime closure of M54
junction 4 eastbound exit slip road and eastbound lane 1 closure from junction
5 to junction 4. Work will be carried out from 6am to 8pm each day. Traffic will
be diverted to continue to junction 3 and turn around back to junction 4.
• Friday 4 to Monday 7 March 2022 – Weekend closure of the M54 eastbound
between the junction 4 entry and exit slip roads from 8pm on Friday to 6am on
Monday. Traffic will be diverted up and over the junction via the slip roads.

Impacts on road users and residents
We expect delays on the M54 and along the diversion routes during these
weekends, so please consider using alternative routes where possible.
You’ll still be able to use the road as normal during the week, and access will be
maintained for emergency vehicles during all closures.
During the closures, those living along the diversion routes will likely experience
increased noise levels from the additional traffic. Residents living alongside the M54
will likely be able to hear construction noise and see additional lighting while we
work.
We apologise in advance for any disruption that this work causes.
