Single lane open to traffic on Warwick Road overbridge

Solihull Council would like to sincerely apologise to residents and road users for the delay in the opening of the Warwick Road overbridge near the M42 Junction 5. This delay has been caused by setbacks in the delivery of resurfacing materials.

However, a single lane of the overbridge is now open to traffic which will alleviate the significant tailbacks motorists have experienced recently at peak hours of the day.

This single lane will remain open to traffic until Tuesday 9 September when both lanes will open following the completion of kerbing works.
