MOTORISTS are invited to find out more about a 14-week roadwork project near Penkridge on Wednesday.

Work to reconstruct the M6 hard shoulder, from Junction 13 at Acton Trussell to Junction 12 at Penkridge, gets under way on Thursday, May 15.

On Wednesday there will be a drop-in session for residents and motorists at the Haling Dene Centre, Penkridge, between 5pm and 8pm.

Highways Agency officers and representatives from contractor Carillion will be on hand to answer any questions and explain the work being carried out.

Diversions will not be needed during the overnight work, the Highways Agency has said, but the construction could cause some disruption.

Overnight work will take place between 10pm and 6am each day, on the southbound carriageway first before switching to the northbound carriageway later.

During the constriction traffic will be restricted to just lane three of the carriageway being worked on.

It is part of a scheme to cut congestion on the M6 between junctions 10a and 13, by converting the hard shoulder into a traffic lane to increase capacity and using variable speed limits.
