A46 Stoneleigh junction will be closed overnight on Saturday

THE A46 junction at Stoneleigh will be closed overnight on Saturday (December 11).

It will be shut from between 8pm on Saturday 11 until 10 am Sunday 12 December 2021 as part of the £38million A46 Stoneleigh Junction scheme, which will include a new bridge across the A46 and realigned slip roads forming the basis of a new signalised gyratory system.

The weekend road closure will allow for the safe delivery of a bridge beams for the new A46 bridge which forms a major element of the scheme.

Separate diversion routes will be in place for both motorway traffic (A45, M42, M40) and for non-motorway traffic which will use local roads.




The overall aim of the scheme is to reduce the regular delays and queueing traffic, improve road safety for all users and ensure the junction has the capacity that will be required to meet future growth in the sub-region.

The scheme is being funded by Warwickshire County Council (WCC), The Department for Transport, the West Midlands Combined Authority with developer contributions from the University of Warwick and Whitley South Works through the Coventry & Warwickshire Development Partnership.


WCC highways spokesman Coun Wallace Redford said: “This road closure is essential in order to safely take delivery of essential components for the Stoneleigh Junction Improvement Scheme and every attempt has been made to schedule these at a time when disruption to the highway will be minimised.

“Residents are thanked for their continued patience with these essential developments.”
