M5 Oldbury Viaduct

The M5 is one of the busiest routes in the country, carrying a mix of traffic through the Midlands and onwards to routes in the north and south. Intervention is required now to repair the damaged sections in order to prevent bigger challenges and further disruption in the future.

Over the past few months, engineers have been busy removing concrete using hydro demolition techniques, as well as replacing these areas removed with new concrete. Once complete, a target date is to be set to remove the current temporary contraflow system taking the carriageway back to 3 lanes and improving traffic flow.
