M6 Junction 10 improvement scheme.
Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council appointed LRS to provide a full Land Referencing Service to support the development of the M6 Junction 10 Improvement Scheme.
Plans to provide long term improvements to junction 10 on the M6 have been developed by Walsall Council and Highways England. This is one of the busiest road network junctions in the UK.
The M6 junction 10 currently experiences significant congestion and traffic delays, particularly during morning and evening peak times. Road capacity problems are one of the main transport issues facing the area within the West Midlands Local Transport Plan.
The aims of the scheme are to:
- Reduce congestion, rat-running and queues to create a freer-flowing road network
- Support economic growth, improving access to motorways and Walsall Enterprise Zone sites, attracting new business and development to the area
- Provide a safe, well maintained road network and avoid future major maintenance by replacing the bridges now
- Improve conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders at the junction
