M6, from 9pm November 28 to 6am December 5, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M6 North and southbound, junction 21A - 26 lane closures and carriageway closures due to SMART improvement works.

And a further three closures will begin over the next seven days:

M6, from 9pm December 5 to 6am December 12, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M6 northbound and southbound, J21a to J26 - Lane closure for Construction improvement/Upgrade.

M62, from 4am December 8 to 5pm December 9, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M62 eastbound, junction 8 - nine hard shoulder, closure due to horticultural works.

M6, from 9pm December 12 to 6am December 19, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M6 North and southbound, junction 21A - 26 lane closures and carriageway closures due to SMART improvement works.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
