M62 Managed Motorway Scheme

Jason spent the morning at the M62 managed motorway scheme between junctions 25 and 30. Jason has raised the issue of M62 closures and congestion in Parliament on behalf of his constituents.

Jason joined Project Manager David Pilsworth, pictured, to see the project first hand.

M62 Managed Motorway Scheme

The M62 between junctions 25 and 30 is one of the most congested sections of motorway in England, with over 144,000 using this section of network every day. The Department for Transport have invested £150m in the managed motorway scheme. The scheme allows for variable mandatory speeds and for the hard shoulder to be used as an extra lane during peak times. More information on the scheme can be found here.

The scheme is set to be completed by September 2013, a month ahead of schedule, and under budget by around £12.5m saving the tax payer money.
