Spaghetti Junction – summer closures

Residents heading for the M6, Erdington or Castle Bromwich along the A38(M) Aston Expressway are likely to hit trouble after 7 July 2017.

The biggest problem is likely to be caused by the closure at weekends of the A38(M) Aston Expressway.

The road will be COMPLETELY CLOSED from 8pm on Fridays to 6 am on Mondays for 7 consecutive weekends.

This means that it won’t be possible to use the A38(M) Aston Expressway to get to the M6 on Friday evenings, Saturdays or Sundays. The weekend closures will start on Friday 14 July and apply on every weekend until Monday 28 August. During those weekends, drivers won’t be able to leave the M6 at Junction 6.

In addition, major roadworks on the A38(M) Aston Expressway will cause restrictions and road closures for several weeks. The closures will start on 7 July and will include:

  • Closure of the tidal-flow lane on the A38(M) Aston Expressway.
  • 30mph speed limit on the A38(M) Aston Expressway.
  • Complete CLOSURE of the approaches from Gravelly Hill and the Tyburn Road to the A38(M) Aston Expressway.
