The M6 Motorway runs past Walsall and is the major road route to Walsall.
There are three nearby junctions on the M6 motorway: J7, J9 and J10 that serve Walsall (Junction 8 is the on/off feed for the M5 Motorway).
Please note even with the M6 Toll Road the stretch between these junctions of the M6 Motorway is one of the busiest roads in Europe and is best avoided at Peak Times!
Junction 10 of the M6 Motorway serves Walsall Town Centre, the Manor Hospital and the Northern Districts.
Junction 9 of the M6 Motorway serves Walsall South West including the Bescot Stadium.
Junction 7 of the M6 Motorway serves Walsall South and East, although if you are travelling from the North it is better to come off at either Junction 10 or Junction 9 and follow the Ring Road.
