M62 junction 10 (Croft Interchange): motorway to motorway metering pilotRecently updated

Works on the M62 junction 10 eastbound to allow the speed limit to be changed via electronic signs and signals.

Progress report

We have started work on this scheme. There are full overnight closures on the M62 both the eastbound and westbound to establish narrow lanes. We are due to install a safety barrier protection system although we won't need closures to do this. View our roadworks calendar to plan your journeys.

Why we need this scheme

The M62 and M6 are part of the main transport corridor in the north west of England. They link Merseyside and Greater Manchester with Yorkshire and Humberside. The M6 also links the north and south of England, as well as the north of England to Scotland.

This area suffers from congestion. We aim to smooth the flow of traffic eastbound by adjusting the speed limit in response to traffic levels.

The scheme in detail

This is a pilot scheme which introduces variable mandatory speed limits via overhead electronic signs and signals on the M62 eastbound carriageway. We are also installing traffic signals 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. This will help make the best use of the existing road space.

The two types of enforcement, mandatory speed limits and traffic signals, will be subject to fix penalty notices of intended prosecutions, to be undertaken by Cheshire Police.

Aims

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
  • support economic growth
