As some of our riders can attest, the M54 is suffering from overnight closures (8pm – 6am).
The ongoing closures affect the M54 into Birmingham. The bridge at the JLR Site between Junctions 2 and 3 is being lifted.
Furthermore, resurfacing work is occurring on the the M6 at Junction 1 and between Junctions 6 and 7 eastbound. There is also no entry or exit either at Junction 5!
There is however an alternative route!
Leave the A5 at the Wellington interchange, follow the B5061 across Telford to the Priorslee roundabout (This is the old A5). At the roundabout turn left (North) onto the A5 and follow to the A41 roundabout. Then turn right (South) and follow into Wolverhampton. Go right or left onto the ring road and exit onto the A4213 to Birmingham. After this road passes under the M5 your back onto the regular route!
This “Diversion” will add approximately 15 minutes to the standard journey time.
I hope you find this useful.
