Improvement Scheme

Part of our programme of improvements (generally with value <£10m)

Cost:  £12.6 million


Managed by:   Area 10

-

What is happening?

We will introduce variable mandatory speed limits (via overhead electronic signs and signals on the M62 eastbound carriageway), and traffic lights on the link roads which connect the M6 (northbound and southbound) at junction 21A to the eastbound carriageway of the M62 junction 10 Croft Interchange.

 

When and where is this happening?

The scheme will be installed on the M62 eastbound carriageway and on the link roads connecting from the M6 at junction 21A to the eastbound carriageway of the M62 at junction 10 Croft Interchange.

It will take place from 19 November 2016 to 03 July 2017.

Why is this happening and what will it cost?

This area suffers from congestion and will help to smooth the flow of traffic eastbound onto the M62 from the M6 at junction 21A. The combination of variable mandatory speed limits and traffic signals will help to make the best use of the existing road space.

The M2M Metering Pilot Scheme is part of our programme to increase the resilience of the network, in order to support economic growth and maintain mobility.

How will the scheme be carried out?

We will provide further information closer to the time.

What are the benefits?

The scheme aims to:

  • increase resilience of this section of our network
  • smooth traffic flows
  • provide more reliable journey times
  • increase and improve the quality of information for road users

How do I find out more information ?

More information will be posted on this project page as it becomes available. You can subscribe to be alerted when updates are made.
