The M5 Oldbury Viaduct project team invites you to visit the site on 7 March. Please note there is a limit of six people for this visit. However, if there is a high level of interest we may consider additional dates.
The project is taking place in the 3.2 km elevated part between Junction 1 and 2 of the M5 highway in Oldbury. The existing composite type viaduct was constructed in 1970 and repaired once in 1985. Since then there were only minor repairs with the waterproofing layer to be damaged and allow water and chlorides to access the concrete deck and create corrosion. In addition, bad maintenance combined with construction mistakes had also contributed to the poor condition of the deck.
The existing project scope is to repair the viaduct as a whole and includes concrete repairs, waterproofing and resurfacing, asbestos removal, installation of new joints in the deck ends, new drainage system, new central reserve and new lighting and traffic management equipment.
The nearest train station is Sandwell & Dudley. It takes around 14 minutes to get there from Birmingham New Street where trains depart every 10-26 minutes. The maximum return cost of the ticket is £5.30.
