Important Updates

HS2 - Traffic management – A45 service road 23 May to 22 July

From Monday 23 May until Friday 22 July, there will be a series of works on and around the slip road that connects the Coventry Road (A45) with East Way at the Bickenhill recycling centre. This will be to install a temporary power cable to facilitate the building of the new railway and the works will be completed in three phases.

The first phase will be to dig a trench in the area immediately south of the slip road in the car park used by the company ‘Traffix’. It is not envisaged that any traffic management will be needed at this stage.

The second phase will be a full overnight closure of the slip road between Monday 6 June and Wednesday 6 July. The closure will be in place between Monday and Friday from 9pm to 5am. East bound traffic wishing to access East Way will be diverted around the Bickenhill Interchange roundabout over Junction 6 of the M42 resulting in a slight increase in journey times.

The final phase of the works will be a single lane closure on the slip road. This will be in place from Thursday 7 July until Friday 22 July, weekdays only between 9:30am and 3:30pm. Traffic will be able to access East Way as normal without being diverted.
