Why we need this scheme

The government announced this scheme in December 2014 as part of the Road Investment Strategy. This busy junction is in need of improvement to meet the expected increase in traffic coming from the M6 smart motorway scheme and the A556 improvement scheme, both currently underway. Once all works are completed, there will be better access to the M56 and Manchester Airport.

Aims

The changes are vital for reducing congestion in the future, improving safety and journey time reliability for all road users and increasing connectivity between local areas. The plans will also improve access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

The scheme in detail

We have worked up two options that meet the aims we have set for this scheme. View our proposals in full and tell us what you think.
Option A
We propose to:
  • add a two-way link across the junction to allow better connection between the M6 and A556, including a new bridge spanning the M6 motorway within the roundabout
  • renew traffic signals on the roundabout and its approach roads
  • add new traffic signals for the Tabley Hill Lane / Pickmere Lane Junction
  • widen lanes on the existing roundabout to increase capacity, including the bridges over the M6
  • add news signs including gantry signs
  • improve local access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders using the junction
Option B
We propose to:
  • renew traffic signals on the roundabout and its approach roads
  • add new traffic signals for the Tabley Hill Lane / Pickmere Lane Junction
  • widen lanes on the existing roundabout to increase capacity, including the bridges over the M6
  • add a third lane to the A556 northbound exit
  • add a new segregated left turn from the A556 northbound to the M6 northbound with a raised island separating it from the roundabout
  • add news signs including gantry signs
