Highways England will shortly be carrying out works to lift the second bridge into place on the motorway.
The M49 will be closed throughout the bridge installation and a diversion will be in place.

The work will take place from Friday 21st June at 20:00 to Monday 24 June at 06:00.

Highways England (HE) also has two contingency weekends planned for:
20:00 Friday 28 June – 06:00 Monday 1 July
20:00 Friday 5 July – 06:00 Monday 8 July

HE always aim to work to the programme; however, unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions may mean they have to make late changes. They’ll notify you of any major amendments within the programme via advance roadside warning signs and on their website. You can also follow them on Twitter where they’ll tweet any
changes to the road closures; @HighwaysSWest.
