M54 closure on Sunday 8 May for charity motorcycle event
Bike4Life, a charity motorbike event, will take place on Sunday (8 MAY) and will result in the closure of the eastbound M54 through Telford.
The M54, eastbound from junction 7 will be closed to enable over 3,500 motorcycles to travel safely from 11.40am - 1pm, although the operators anticipate that the route may be clear sooner, potentially after an hour.
Traffic will be diverted along the following routes:
From Junction 7 (Wellington) - Along the B5061 to Ketley Brook roundabout, then following Holyhead Road through Beverley Roundabout and Greyhound Interchange to Priorslee Roundabout before being directed left onto the A5 through Limekiln Roundabout * and then onwards on the A5 towards the A41.
From Junction 6 (Wrekin Retail Park/Lawley) – Follow the A5223 towards Ketley Brook Roundabout, then travel along Holyhead Road through Beverley Roundabout and Greyhound Interchange to Priorslee Roundabout before being directed left on the A5 through Limekiln Roundabout * and then onwards on the A5 towards the A41.
From Junction 5 (Forge, Telford Town Centre) – Along A5 Rampart Way to Hollinswood Interchange, then continue to follow A5 to the A41 through Priorslee Roundabout and Limekiln Roundabout * and then onwards on the A5 towards the A41.
From Junction 4 (Telford Services) - via Castle Farm Way towards Limekiln Roundabout * before being directed right onto the A5 towards the A41.
* Limekiln Roundabout - There are highway improvement works taking place at Limekiln Roundabout, the Council has ensured there will be no temporary traffic lights in place, however there will still be lane restrictions and traffic management in place as these cannot be removed due to the ongoing roadworks. The Contractor has been briefed and will endeavour to reduce disruption where possible, however, delays at Limekiln Roundabout are expected during the closure period.
