Oldbury Viaduct – M5 junctions 1-2

Major roadworks start after Easter. If you use this road, your journey will be affected. 

After Easter, Highways England will be starting a major concrete repair and waterproofing scheme on the M5 Oldbury Viaduct between junctions 1 and 2.

The structure of the viaduct is safe but intervention is required now to repair the damaged sections in order to prevent bigger challenges and further disruption in the future. Once complete, customers will benefit from a safer and more resilient route.

To keep this vital route open we will be using different phases of traffic management starting with a reduction to 3 narrow lanes and 40mph speed limit between junctions 1 and 2. We will do everything possible to plan and manage our roadworks to keep traffic moving. However there will be some disruption to the M5 and routes leading into and out of these junctions.

To help you can:

  • plan your journey
  • take the bus, train or Midland Metro
  • car share
  • work from home
  • avoid rush hour
