Work continues on Spaghetti Junction

Highways England is continuing to repair the Aston Expressway and Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham with overnight closures set to run for an additional two weeks.

Highways England recently lifted full weekend closures of Spaghetti Junction sooner than anticipated, which opened up an opportunity to reduce the overall duration of the ongoing work to replace waterproofing and repair damaged concrete on the road.

The scheme was originally due to finish on 5 September but will now be completed mid-September.

Highways England regional divisional director in the Midlands, Andrew Butterfield, said: “By completing the work now, we can fully repair this section of the carriageway and reduce the duration of work and more importantly the risk of emergency repairs during the colder and wetter winter months. Safety is our number one priority and these repairs are vital in helping us to protect this iconic structure for years to come.

“We continue to work closely with Birmingham City Council to manage the repair programme and although further work is likely in the future, we are making sure that we fully utilise the existing programme of repairs to minimise disruption.”
