M62 J10-12 Smart Motorway

Scheme outline

Work to upgrade the M62 between junctions 10 (Croft Interchange at the M6) and junction 12 (Eccles Interchange at the M60) to Smart Motorway standard. This will include the introduction of new technology, with Variable Speed Limits, new traffic sensors and CCTV. Refuge areas will also be installed at regular intervals by the side of the motorway.

It is not yet clear whether the Smart Motorway will be operated with All Lane Running, converting the hard shoulder to a permanent fourth running lane, though this seems likely.

This scheme is part of the Smart Motorways programme of works.

Temporary signs have gone up on the eastbound side just after Croft Interchange warning that work is due to start imminently.
Variable speed limits are already in place j10-j11 (Eastbound only) as a result of the Ramp Metering scheme installed at Croft last year.

Survey work is underway, but there are no temporary speed limits or other restrictions on traffic yet.
