Good afternoon neighbour,

Please find information below detailing a hard shoulder closure along the M42 being carried out by LM (Laing O’Rourke and J. Murphy & Sons) on behalf of HS2.

As part of our preparation works for future construction of the HS2 Interchange Station and railway route, we are undertaking roadside vegetation clearance in the area. To carry out our works safely, we will install traffic measures when necessary. Subject to obtaining the relevant consents, we will install a temporary, hard shoulder closure along the M42 northbound from 9.30am to 3.30pm between Monday 2 August to Friday 6 August between junctions 6 and 7. The map below shows the location of the hard shoulder closure in orange.
