M40/M42 Interchange Scheme: Advanced Works Phase

Dear all,

I work for the contractors bmJV carrying out the above scheme on behalf of National Highways. Please see an update below.

 

If there is someone else who would benefit from this information please have them contact me to be added to the distribution list.

 

Please let me know if you do not want to receive future updates.

Our next phase of work will start on 20 September and continue until the end of the year. We’ll be working in the hard shoulder and our team will be clearing some vegetation and installing temporary ducting for cables. This is so that when we start to build the main scheme, these will help us link signs, signals and cameras so we can manage and operate the network safely and efficiently.

We’ll continue to work at night time, when the roads are  quietest, where we can. However as some of this work will be noisy, to minimise disruption we’ll carry out work during the daytime too. To keep our workforce and motorists safe, we’ll close the hard shoulder in 1km (0.6 miles) sections while we work.

We’ll start work on the M42 northbound carriageway from just before junction 3 and continue north, completing each section before moving onto the next. Some evening lane closures will be required to move traffic management equipment as we progress.

We’ll install some hard shoulder closures on the southbound carriageway around the M42 junction 3a too, so our team can complete similar ducting works in that area.

Schedule of lane closures from 20 September to 24 December 2021.

Northbound and / or southbound carriageway from the M42 junction 3 to M40 junction 16:

  • Hard shoulder: 24-hour closure in 1km sections – weekly from Mondays 1am to Saturdays 6am.
  • Lane 1 and 2 closures: – 9pm to 6am – in 4km sections – weeknights, as required.

Please note our planned road closures may be cancelled due to poor weather or for operational reasons.

There will be advanced signage in place to inform and remind drivers of these closures.

As we deliver this important road upgrade, we are conscious of the need to keep the region moving. We will coordinate our work with HS2 and the Commonwealth Games to minimise disruption to the network and we are currently finalising our work programme on this basis.

We will deliver the scheme by 2023-24.

Contact us:

For information, please contact our customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000 or email: 

If you would like more information about the scheme including planned closure details, please visit our webpage: www.highwaysengland.co.uk/our-work/west-midlands/m40-m42-interchange-smart-motorway/

Or contact me at  or telephone on 07881 847 401.

Yours sincerely,

Community Mental Health – Volunteer Opportunity

ONSIDE is delighted to be supporting the transformation of community mental health services in Worcestershire, aimed at making mental health services more local, accessible and responsive.

In collaboration with Worcestershire Association of Carers and Springfield MIND we provide a range of support designed to address the wider social and practical needs of people living with mental ill health.

Working within the neighbourhood mental health teams alongside clinical and other mental health services, Community Mental Health Link Workers guide patients through local health, social care and neighbourhood services.

Community Mental Health Volunteers support adults:

  • who have been signposted to community activities (e.g. walking groups, choirs, art groups), information and advice
  • in both individual and group peer support settings

This is the right role for you if you want to make a positive difference to someone’s mental wellbeing. We are looking for people who can offer compassionate practical support to those living with mental ill health. All training required for this role is provided.

Please contact John Turner for more information

Dear all,

Please find the latest information bulletin below.  (Please note: These bulletins are designed to replace our monthly e-newsletter for the time being, with Covid related information at the top.)

COVID Vaccinations 

 

  • Guidance relating to children and young people aged 12-15 years – At the current time, children 12 to 15 years of age with severe neuro-disabilities, Down’s syndrome, underlying conditions resulting in immunosuppression, and those with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD), severe learning disabilities or who are on the learning disability register are considered at increased risk for serious COVID-19 disease and should be offered COVID-19 vaccination.

REMINDER – COVID Testing – Rapid Lateral Flow Tests – for people who DO NOT have any symptoms

 

Everyone can access FREE regular rapid tests.  Regular, twice weekly rapid testing is encouraged, even if you have been vaccinated.  Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms.  Getting tested regularly finds hidden cases, ensuring you don’t pass it onto family members, friends or workmates.  If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

You can book at test, order online or simply pick up home testing at a range of local venues.  Your employer may also offer free rapid lateral flow testing.  The tests give you a result in just 30 minutes.  Further information, including FAQs, can be found here.

Have symptoms and need a PCR test?  Further information on both types of tests can be found here.
