DRIVERS are being warned of roadworks at the M40/M42 interchange.
Work to upgrade 7.5miles of steel safety barrier to a concrete one between the M42 junction 3 and junction 3a, and M42 junction 3a to M40 junction 16 will begin on Monday, February 6.
During the works, three slightly narrower lanes will remain open to traffic and also creating a safe space for working around the central reservation.
There will be a reduced speed limit of 50mph, CCTV coverage and a free recovery service.
National Highways regional sponsor, Paul Unwin, said: “Concrete barriers improve safety by reducing the risk of vehicles crossing over into the other carriageway, which can also cause lengthy traffic delays. This is an important safety upgrade and is a huge benefit to road users.”
