M6 Upgrade Complete

Home » Newsroom » M6 Upgrade Complete

At last, it looks like the upgrade to the M6 is complete, so, let's hope that will improve our journeys north and south.

DRIVERS will be able to experience the benefits of the biggest upgrade of the M6 in Cheshire from today, Monday.

Highways England has completed a £265 million project to add extra lanes and new technology to a 19-mile stretch between Crewe and Knutsford — the most significant change since the M6 opened in the county in 1963.

A fourth lane has been introduced in each direction, and 258 electronic signs, 104 traffic sensors and 70 CCTV cameras will help tackle congestion and improve journey times for 120,000 drivers every day.
