Announcement re HS2
Marston Box is the bridge that will carry the HS2 line across the M42 motorway near junction 9, north of Lea Marston and Curdworth in North Warwickshire. In December 2021 we need to undertake work, between junctions 9 and 10 of the M42 motorway, to prepare the ground to enable us to move the Marston Box bridge into position in winter 2022.
To complete these works safely and efficiently there will be a temporary full closure of both the M42 southbound and northbound, between junctions 9 and 10, for 7 days. The closure period will be:
9pm on Friday 24 December (Christmas Eve) to 9pm on Friday 31 December 2021 (New Year’s Eve).
A clearly signed diversion route will be in place over this period with advance signage in place to help remind motorists of the closure.
If you have any questions regarding the closure, please contact the HS2 Helpdesk on: Freephone: 08081 434 434
