Travel Warnings In Place Ahead Of Weekend Matches

9 months ago By Sam Elliott

There could be potential travel concerns for some supporters this weekend so we ask fans to plan ahead when following their clubs on Saturday.

Due to essential repairs being undertaken on the M6 between junctions 6 (Spaghetti junction) and 8 (RAC building, Walsall) to the north west of Birmingham there will be night time closures on this section of the motorway.

Additionally on Saturday and Sunday the M6 northbound ONLY will be restricted to one operational lane during the daytime - so delays can be expected from 7am to 8pm.

There will also be daytime restrictions from the A34 and onto the northbound slip road at junction 7 (Great Barr).

This could well cause issued for supporters backing their teams in the National League from Dover Athletic, Chester FC, Maidenhead United, Tranmere Rovers, Aldershot Town, Kidderminster Harriers, Blyth Spartans and Chorley.

It might also impact on the FA Trophy quarter final tie involving Brackley Town and Stockport County.

Allow plenty of extra time if you plan to use the M6 northbound this weekend.

Potential diversions to consider (from the south and east). Use the M40 north / M42 / M5 north and then M6 north.

You might also like to consider using the M6 toll for the northbound journey, as this will avoid the roadworks

Real-time traffic information for England’s motorways and major A roads is available via its website.
