Important transport updates
Access Road Works and Traffic Management
As we improve our passenger drop off facilities, drivers are advised to leave more time for their journey to the airport due to surface access works on our internal roads and temporary reduced capacity in the drop & go car park. To avoid delays, we urge passengers to take advantage of the free 15 minute drop off period within Car park 5, clearly directed at the airport entrance. We also remind passengers to use Car Park 1, 2 or 3 if collecting passengers rather than the drop off facility. The same drop off tariff has been introduced within these car parks during the works.

Oldbury Viaduct Renewal Scheme
A major concrete repair and waterproofing scheme has started on the M5 Oldbury Viaduct between junctions 1 and 2. This is planned to be completed by Autumn 2018. We advise passengers arriving from this direction to leave extra time to get to the airport. Click here for more details.
A consultation is underway to gather public views to explore different options for a scheme that will improve traffic on Junction 6 of the M42. Click here for more.
