A section of the M54 has been closed to allow the new i54 business park to be linked up to the motorway network.

The eastbound slip road at junction two will remain closed until Monday morning, while the whole carriageway from junction three to two will close on Sunday night.

It will allow the M54 to be connected to the A449.

The i54 business park is being jointly built by Staffordshire County Council and Wolverhampton City Council.

It will eventually be home to Jaguar Land Rover's new Engine Manufacturing Centre, employing 1,400 people, as well as other automotive and high-tech firms.
