When the carriageways are closed, National Highways said there will be a clearly signed diversion route which has been agreed with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.

National Highways also apologised for the inconvenience caused by the roadworks and said the team will make every effort to manage noise levels carefully and minimise disruption to the local area.
