Work to repair Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham has been completed ahead of schedule.
The vital work involved repairing damaged concrete caused by water seeping into the structure. As part of the scheme, new waterproofing material has been installed, designed to protect the structure for the next 20 years.
Project manager Jessica Kenny from Highways England said: “We’re delighted to be able to complete the scheme more than a month ahead of schedule and to give motorists a festive boost ahead of late night shopping in the coming weeks. We’re grateful for motorists bearing with us as we completed this essential maintenance work and we understand the frustration that can come from roadworks.
“However, by completing the work now, we have been able to fully repair this section of the carriageway and reduce the duration of work and more importantly the risk of emergency repairs during the colder and wetter winter months. Safety is our number one priority and these repairs were vital in helping us to protect this iconic structure for years to come.”
