Scheme Outline

Scheme details

Preparation of legal orders and public inquiry
New road with some parts under motorway restrictions
£ 112m
Highways England
Region: West Midlands
Midland Expressway Ltd.
6.4 km
4.0 miles

A new route to connect the M54, which currently only has south-facing access to the M6, to the M6 Toll slightly to the north. The route will be paid for by the M6 Toll concessionaires. Sadly, considering this will be a link between three motorways, early signs are that it will not be a motorway itself.

The road will be free to use, though obviously traffic joining the M6 Toll will be subject to the toll charges.
