Work to install four of the latest giant electronic message signs near Junction 33 of the M6 will start on Monday 13th January for two months. The signs will give drivers better warnings of incidents and other information about the motorway such as weather conditions.
New CCTV cameras will also be mounted on the signs – allowing the Highways Agency to monitor and manage motorway incidents more effectively.
The work should be completed by Friday 14th March. Lane one of the motorway is likely to be closed around the clock in both directions while the work takes place, and some overnight closures of lane two will also be necessary.
