M6 J16 Improvement

Scheme outline

Work is being carried out under the Pinch Point Programme to fully signalise the roundabout at M6 junction 16 and widen the circulatory carriageway. The existing bridges are already wide enough for the addition of extra circulation lanes.

The northbound and southbound exit slip roads from the M6 are also being widened to support the extra lanes. The A500 western approach is also being widened so that traffic can queue by destination direction and thus reduce waiting time.

This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.

Work finished. Using the junction at about 02.30 on 2nd August shows the need to do some hard work optimising the light controller as it currently seems to be a movement prevention device.
